Q: How long will HHABNs issued prior to the deadline remain in effect for ongoing services?

A: HHABNs issued prior to December 9, 2013 for ongoing, repetitive services will remain in effect for the time period indicated on the notice, up to one calendar year from the date of issuance. Like the older HHABN, the ABN is effective for up to one year and must be issued annually for ongoing, repetitive services when notice is required.
