Can an ABN (Advance Beneficiary Notice of Noncoverage) be issued for HCPCS code A0427-ALS 1/Emergency Transports?

Answer:
Ambulance Suppliers cannot issue an ABN for any emergency transport and cannot shift liability to the beneficiary under the Limitation On Liability (LOL) Provision. See the Social Security Act §1862(a)(1) for more detailed information on LOL.
