Medical Necessity Verification (ABN Checking)


The “ABN Check” is intended to assist healthcare providers in providing  appropriate and complete documentation to LabCorp Indiana in order to facilitate the efficient and effective delivery of healthcare services to patients. It is the responsibility of every healthcare provider to bill correctly. LabCorp Indiana does not intend this ABN Check to be legal advice or a substitute for legal advice relating to reimbursement or any other issue. It should not be considered authoritative or complete as regards to content. It is also not intended to induce any recipient to direct Medicare related lab services to LabCorp Indiana. The information within does change from time to time and all healthcare providers should remember to confirm their compliance with all appropriate guidelines on their own.

LabCorp Indiana warns against using this check to determine a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. It is offered only as a means to determine if a test is covered by Medicare and, therefore, would or would not currently require that an Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) be initiated and signed.
