CMS Releases Email Alert Regarding Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation

On February 23, 2012, CMS issued an email notification to all Fee-for-Service (“FFS”) providers, which states the following:

CMS has received reports that providers are receiving denials for advanced diagnostic imaging (ADI) services they are accredited to perform. We have taken action to correct the situation. CMS has instructed all contractors to review each ADI claim denial, and reprocess those claims that were deemed to be incorrectly denied in a timely manner. Providers do not need to take any action in this situation.

For more information on diagnostic imaging providers, please contact Adrienne Dresevic or Carey Kalmowitz at (248) 996-8510 or visit The HLP website.
