CMS Raises Hospital Reimbursement Rate For Bone Density Scans, But Is It Enough?
Advocacy groups for diagnostic services to test for osteoporosis scored a big win when the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services agreed to raise Medicare reimbursement rates for DXA bone density scans in the hospital setting this year rather than cutting the rates as initially proposed. However, there is not such good news for doctors providing in-office DXA scans, as they struggle with continuing declining reimbursement rates that cannot offset the costs of the procedures.
