3 Things You Need to Know About
CMS/MIPPA Accreditation Requirements

1.  Who needs to be accredited?
The Medicare Improvements for Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA) calls for all providers of CT, MRI, breast MRI, nuclear medicine, and PET exams that bill under Part B of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule to be accredited by Jan 1, 2012, in order to receive payment for the technical component of these services. Currently, the CMS/MIPPA mandates apply to private outpatient facilities only, NOT to hospitals.

2.  What are the basic areas of CMS requirements?
* Image quality
* Equipment performance
* Safety standards for staff & patients
* Quality assurance & quality control

Reimbursements will only be made if a provider is fully accredited by one of the 3 CMS designated accreditation organizations: The American College of Radiology, Intersocietal Accreditation Commission, and The Joint Commission.
