What is XR-29 Compliance?

XR29 is a law that affects reimbursements on CT scans. Starting January 1, 2016 you must be tracking dose on all CT scans and comply with “Smart Dose” Standards.

What are the penalties for non-compliance?

If your CT scanner does not comply, you must report each scan with a new Code Modifier. The code applies to the specific CT scanner, not the type of scan. In addition, there is a 5% reduction in reimbursement for each non-compliant scan in 2016, and a 15% reduction planned for 2017.

What are my options?

Older CT Scanners do not include a dose tracking feature, so people are forced to purchase a new system from the OEM. However, you do have alternative options available to you.

1) Purchase a brand new CT Scanner

2) Install dose-tracking software and extend the life of your existing scanner – for half the cost!

3) Continue scanning without dose tracking. Establish new reporting procedures to include the new Code Modifier for each CT scanner, and see a 5-15% revenue loss.
