ASNC Signs Coalition Letter on Retroactive Medicare Payments

December 10, 2010

ASNC joined more than 100 medical organizations in a letter asking the Department of Health and Human Services to begin processing retroactive Medicare payments that were included as provisions of the Affordable Care Act or as corrections to the 2010 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. One retroactive payment critical for ASNC members is CMS's corrected calculation of practice expenses for myocardial perfusion imaging services. Recent legislation passed by Congress allocated $200 million to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to process these payments, and ASNC will keep members apprised of how CMS intends to reprocess impacted claims.
