New! Cardiac PET Model Coverage Policy
Will Help Prevent Care Delays and Denials

Last week, ASNC published The ASNC Model Coverage Policy: 2023 Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography, a document written by leading cardiac imagers to encourage consistent and correct coverage policies for cardiac PET.
The model coverage policy defines several categories of clinical indications where cardiac PET and myocardial blood flow assessment should be universally covered by Medicare contractors, Medicaid programs, and private payers. The categories include:
• Cardiac PET perfusion imaging for diagnosis, prognosis, response to therapy, and evaluation of regional and global myocardial blood flow; and
• Cardiac PET metabolic imaging for myocardial viability, cardiac sarcoidosis, and infection.
All the Evidence in One User-friendly Document
The new model coverage policy for cardiac PET provides tables detailing how the clinical indications for cardiac PET correspond to the appropriate use criteria (AUC) and the ICD-10 Clinical Modification codes. ASNC intends for the model coverage policy to function as a helpful resource for the cardiology community, referring physicians, health insurers, and billing/coding staff.
By compiling the current evidence supporting medical necessity for each indication, ASNC aims to –
• Help payers improve current preauthorization processes that can restrict patients' access to appropriate imaging and lead to dangerous care delays and denials;
• Support appropriate cardiac imaging by providing cardiac imagers, referrers, and insurers with clear indications and supporting data, including references to the medical literature and cross-references to the AUC; and
• Assist practices with accurate and complete coding and billing.

Last week, United Healthcare (UHC) announced a plan to reduce prior authorization requirements for many procedure codes, including for SPECT MPI (codes 78451-78454), in Medicare Advantage plans. The new policy will go into effect Nov. 1, 2023.

Call to Action: ASNC is urging us to tell Congress to pass the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act!

This legislation, if passed, will add a permanent, inflationary update based on the MEI to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. This bill is an important step toward providing financial stability for physician practices and thus supporting Medicare patients' access to care.

Make your voice heard and send a message to Congress through ASNC's Action Center today at this link:

Earlier this month, Rep. Ruiz,MD (D-California),  Rep. Bucshon, MD (R-Indiana), Rep. Bera (D- California), and  Rep. Miller- Meeks, MD (R-Iowa) introduced C (H.R. 2474) If passed, the legislation would add a permanent, inflationary update...

Health policy update from ASNC: CMS issued a final rule that puts in place better guardrails to stop Medicare Advantage plans from denying enrollees basic benefits. The improvements are in response to a 2022 report from the Office of the Inspector General that found Medicare Advantage plans were denying care that met Medicare coverage rules.

The document also includes important updates relating to requirements for Medicare Advantage Plans and regulations around the review of adverse medical necessity decisions. You can view the final rule here:

New from ASNC: Last week, a bipartisan group of lawmakers in the House of Representatives introduced legislation that, if passed, would add a permanent, inflationary update based on the Medicare Economic Index (MEI) to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.

In its annual report to Congress, MedPAC urged Congress to tie a physician payment update to the MEI, but recommended the update should be just half of the MEI. ASNC holds the position that half of the MEI is inadequate given rising practice costs, as explained in a letter asking Congress to pass legislation providing for an update based on the full MEI.

Check out the Digirad team's in-person demo of the Ergo to the radiology department at a large hospital in New York this week. The Ergo's portability makes it easier for you to bring nuclear imaging to your patients, and for us to bring this groundbreaking camera to you as well. We were able to walk through how this moveable camera can perform over 94% of standard nuclear medicine procedures including bone scans, HIDA, gastric emptying, renal, lung scans, and many more.

Did you know that solid-state nuclear cameras come in two main formats: CZT or CsI. Both produce high-quality images and allow the equipment to be more compact and lightweight. The key differences lie with the conversion technology – while CZT utilizes direct conversion, CsI uses indirect conversion with the aid of photodiodes.

What are the key differences between CZT and CsI imaging? Both are solid state imaging types, but here is how each one works:
