NGS Releases ABN Form Video


The ICS receives many calls from members regarding the Medicare ABN form.  When to use it, when not to use it, using it for non-covered services, and more.  Yesterday, NGS released a 5-minute video explaining the proper usage of the ABN form as it relates to these questions and more.  You may access that video here: 


While reviewing the video information, remember a common mistake made by Chiropractic Physicians surrounds the chiropractic manipulative technique (CMT) when it is not an active treatment for Medicare patients. Please note, that the CMT (9894x) is ALWAYS a covered service.  However, it is not always reimbursable (i.e. maintenance or non-active treatment). Thus, maintenance CMT would require an ABN Form as indicated at the :30 second mark in the video.  For more information on why CMT is always a covered service, please find more information here:


This video will assist Chiropractic Physicians as they determine the best times to utilize the ABN form both when it is mandatory and when it is optional.
