The ABN, Form CMS-R-131, and form instructions are expiring as of June 30, 2023. The NEW ABN form has been issued by CMS. The use of the renewed form with the expiration date of 01/31/2026 will be mandatory on 6/30/23.
You may continue to use the ABN form with the expiration date of 6/30/23 until the renewed form (expiration date 01/31/2026) becomes mandatory on 6/30/23. However, don’t forget! If you continue to use the expired version of the form after June 30, 2023, Medicare will deem the form to be defective and may demand that you refund the patient.
