CMS update regarding changes to our imaging reimbursement.

We wanted to make you aware of an important CMS update regarding changes to our imaging reimbursement.

The proposed rule will effect the following:
January 2017 Onward: CMS will impose a 20% reimbursement penalty on the technical component of Medicare-eligible x-rays performed on film-based systems.
January 2018 – December 2022: CMS will impose a 7% reimbursement penalty on the technical component of Medicare-eligible x-rays performed on CR-based systems.
January 2023 Onward: The reduction for CR-based X-ray exams jumps to 10%.
We will keep you posted on the final rule as well as new billing rules and modifiers that will be inevitable!
