Advance Beneficiary Notice for Ultrasound Screening for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (Rev. 1113, 01-02-07)

Medicare contractors will deny an AAA screening service billed more than once in a beneficiary’s lifetime.

If a second G0389 is billed for AAA for the same beneficiary or if any of the other statutory criteria for coverage listed in section 1861(s)(2)(AA) of the Social Security Act are not met, the service would be denied as a statutory (technical) denial under section 1861(s)(2)(AA), not a medical necessity denial.

If a provider cannot determine whether or not the beneficiary has previously had an AAA screening, but all of the other statutory requirements for coverage have been met, the provider should issue the ABN-G. Likewise, if all of the statutory requirements for coverage have been met, but a question of medical necessity still exists, the provider should issue the ABN-G.
