Accreditation to be Required by Medicare for CT Scans

Published on: December 16th, 2010

As part of the Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA), by Jan. 1, 2012, all non-hospital providers of advanced diagnostic imaging, including computed tomography (CT) scans, must be accredited as a condition of reimbursement.  The accreditation requirements apply to any “supplier” of advanced diagnostic imaging service. The term supplier includes physicians (whether a sole-practitioner or a physician group practice), non-physician practitioners and facilities or other entities that are paid under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, including independent diagnostic testing facilities.
