2008 Outpatient Payment Roundup

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Myocardial PET scans - CMS will continue paying the same amount for single and multiple myocardial positron emission tomography scans in 2008, but the final median cost calculation drops significantly from the proposed rate, from $2,678 to $1,384. The ambulatory payment classification (APC) rate, which is impacted by the agency's new policy to package diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals into the payment, still compares favorably with the 2007 rate of $727 ("The Gray Sheet" July 30, 2007).
