The new Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) requires imaging centers who offer certain advanced imaging modalities (CT, MRI, PET, Nuclear) to be accredited by January 1, 2012 in order to be reimbursed under Medicare Part B. Does this apply to hospitals?
No. The requirements apply only to freestanding imaging centers. Off site hospital-based imaging centers are also exempt if they bill through the hospital for the technical component of the exam. For more detailed information, visit the ACR website FAQ’s
