Homecare Insider, December 16, 2013

Home health agencies are now required to begin using the Home Health Change of Care Notice (HHCCN) and Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN) forms in place of the HHABN. Since the implementation last week, many providers continue to face confusion regarding the transition, and how information from the HHABN is being captured across the new forms. This issue of Homecare Insider breaks down what your agency needs to know about these two forms.

Our Q&A provides guidance on how long will HHABNs issued prior to the deadline remain in effect for ongoing services.
