A trip to the hospital can be stressful for patients and loved ones—but here at Harrington, we want to reduce stress and make your visit more pleasant. In doing so, we provide supportive and streamlined services to ensure that your registration is quicker and easier.
Advanced Beneficiary Notice
Providers are required to give an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN), also known as a waiver of liability. This is a notice you should receive when providers offer a service or test they believe Medicare will not cover. ABNs only apply if you have a Medicare plan.
We will inform you if an ABN is necessary for your test and walk you through your options.
