Physicians to See Increase in Medicare Reimbursement for DXA in August
Date: July 01, 2010
Physicians should begin to see the long fought for increase in Medicare reimbursement for DXA testing sometime in August. This increase is guaranteed under the Health Care Reform Legislation which was signed into law in the spring. The higher reimbursement rate for new DXA claims was expected to be implemented beginning June 1, 2010. However, several issues have delayed that date most likely until August. ASBMR continues to monitor the implementation of the DXA legislation and will provide information to our members as soon as it is available.
