have you had any trouble with mammography claims?

I notice a few MACs are pushing mammography guidance lately - here's an example:

I wonder why that is? Have any of you had any trouble with these claims?

Thanks,
Roy

    Interesting! Hadn’t thought of that. What would the POS on those be, I wonder?

    Sorry, I'll copy the main part of it here:

    Mammography coverage and certification of mammography facilities
    Providers and suppliers that furnish and bill Medicare for film, digital, or 3-D mammography services are reminded that claims for these mammography services will either deny or reject as unprocessable if:
    * There is no FDA certification number reported on the claim
    * The facility is not certified for the type of mammogram submitted on the claim (film, digital, or 3-D)
    * A facility's certificate is suspended or revoked
    * The HCPCS/CPT code billed does not match the certification on file for the facility, or
    * There is no FDA certification number on the MQSA file for the facility listed on the claim
    Note: Direct any questions/concerns regarding certification dates to the FDA MQSA Facility Hotline at 1-800-838-7715.
    For additional information, providers and suppliers that furnish and bill Medicare for film, digital, or 3-D mammography services can refer to Medicare's internet only manual (IOM) Publication 100-04, Chapter 18, Section 20 and its subsections found here: https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Manuals/downloads/clm104c18.pdf [external pdf file] .

  • The POS is 15 mobile unit. However, if it is on the hospital grounds could be 22 outpatient.
