On October 21, 2019, The Center for Medicare Advocacy submitted comments in support of a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposal to modify the instructions to the Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN).
The change would make it clear that providers may not bill dually eligible beneficiaries before their claim has gone through both Medicare and Medicaid. The Center strongly supports this modification, as the current language can cause confusion for dually eligible beneficiaries.
