From what I understand
No you do not require an ABN if you are applying a GY, GY is statutorily excluded as a non covered benefit, so you already know it is NOT covered, there would be no reason for the ABN, which states Medicare "may" not cover items or services.
I actually am in discussion with my state medical society to get an answer on this problem, because Medicare does not want you to bill them for non covered items or services EVEN for the purposes of getting a denial- so why did they create the GY????
Also I can't really think of an outpatient procedure you would want to apply that to???Curious???
Anywhoooo, the answer would be no.
