Patient and 家庭 Advisory Council

Members of the Patient and 家庭 Advisory Council (PAFC) work with representatives of Calvert 健康 System (CHS) to provide valuable feedback and personal insights about the patient care experience.

Putting 病人 and 家庭 First
The PFAC serves a vital role by offering suggestions for putting patients and families first when planning new programs and services. Participation in the council gives members a voice in the decision-making process.

The council is composed of patients, family members of patients, hospital staff and other employees of the health system. Members are selected to reflect the diversity of our community. This includes individuals of different ages, gender, ethnicity and socio-economic status. All members must be 18 years or older.

会员须:

  • Actively support the purpose of the PFAC and its objectives.
  • Regularly attend PFAC meetings (1½ to 2 hours each and minimum of six annually).
  • Take the immunizations required by CHS to protect the health of patients, staff and visitors.
  • Agree not to disclose confidential information given to you as a PFAC member.
  • Participate in PFAC projects, committees or working groups (that require a varied number of hours).
By sharing your perspective you can help CHS to continually improve the quality, safety and efficiency of the services it offers the patients and families who seek care here.

Medicare Waiver/Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN)


可打印版本.

What is a Medicare Waiver/Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN)?

An Advance Beneficiary Notice (ABN) is a written notice from Medicare (standard 政府ernment form CMS-R-131) given to you before receiving certain items or services, notifying you:
  • Medicare may deny payment for that specific procedure or treatment
  • You will be personally responsible for full payment if Medicare denies payment

An ABN gives you the opportunity to accept or refuse 项目或服务 and protects you from unexpected financial liability in cases where Medicare denies payment. It also offers you the right to appeal Medicare's decision.

If I receive an ABN form, what are my options?

You have the option to receive 项目或服务 or to refuse them. 无论哪种情况, you should choose one option on the form by checking the box provided, and then signing and dating it in the space provided.

If you choose to receive 项目或服务:

You must check "OPTION 1"

  • 在表格上签名并注明日期
  • The claim will be sent to Medicare. You may be billed while Medicare is making its decision
  • If Medicare does pay, you will be refunded any payments that are due to you
  • If Medicare denies payment, you will be personally responsible for full payment
  • You will have the right to appeal Medicare's decision
If you choose NOT to receive 项目或服务:

You must check "OPTION 3"

  • 在表格上签名并注明日期
  • Your claim will not be sent to Medicare
Although Medicare may not pay for your items or services, there may be a good reason for your physician recommending them. You should notify your doctor of your refusal.

What if I refuse to sign an ABN, but I want 项目或服务 anyway?

If you refuse to sign, one of two actions will take place:
  • Calvert 健康 System may decide 不提供 项目或服务
  • A second person will witness your refusal to sign the agreement, and you 将会收到 项目或服务. 然而, you may be held liable because you have been notified of the likelihood of a Medicare denial.

When I am liable for payment because I signed an ABN, how much can I be charged?

When you sign an ABN and become liable for payment, you will have to pay for the item or service yourself, either out of pocket or by some other insurance coverage that you may have in additionto Medicare. Medicare fee schedule amounts and balance billing limits do not apply. The amount of the bill is a matter between you and 网上买球软件. A cost estimate is included in box of the ABN. 然而, please keep in mind that this is just an estimate and may or may not reflectthe exact cost of the service being performed.

Why do I routinely receive an ABN for certain items or services?

Certain items or services that are covered by Medicare are only covered up to a certain number of times within a specified amount of time. Examples of these "frequency limited" services include laboratory tests, some preventive screening tests and vaccinations. If you receive an ABN that gives a frequency limit as its reason, it means that Medicare will not pay if you exceed that limit on the service.

Do ABNs mean that Medicare is reducing coverage?

No. ABNs do not operate to reduce coverage at all. Only if and when Medicare does deny the claim do you become liable for paying personally for the service or item. If Medicare decides to pay the claim, you have lost nothing by signing the ABN.

Who do I contact if I have more questions about my Medicare coverage?
