Furthermore, it is not intended to and does not constitute a representation or guarantee of reimbursement, payment, or charge, or that reimbursement or other payment will be received.

Similarly, nothing in this document should be viewed as instructions for selecting any particular code, and Abbott does not advocate or warrant the appropriateness of the use of any particular code. The ultimate responsibility for coding and obtaining payment/reimbursement remains with the customer. This includes the responsibility for accuracy and veracity of all coding and claims submitted to third-party payers. In addition, the customer should note that laws, regulations, and coverage policies are complex and are updated frequently, and, therefore, the customer should check with its local carriers or intermediaries often and should consult with legal counsel or a financial, coding, or reimbursement specialist for any questions related to coding, billing, reimbursement or any related issues.
