Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (ABN): Form Renewal
The Office of Management and Budget approved the Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage (Form CMS-R-131) for renewal. This renewed form expires January 31, 2026.
In addition to the expiration date, CMS also updated the non-discrimination notice on the form. These changes are cosmetic only and do not impact how providers and suppliers fill out the form.
You may use the renewed form now, but you must use it beginning June 30, 2023, when the previous version expires.
