Did You Forget to Reply to CEUltrasound Survey

You and other members of the American College of Radiology (ACR) are key players in the realization of the College’s contrast-enhanced ultrasound coding and reimbursement strategy. If you have not yet responded, we urge you to complete the brief contrast-enhanced ultrasound and ultrasound elastography survey as soon as possible. Related information was posted in the March 31 Advocacy in Action e-News and on the ACR home page on March 29.

Your response will help the ACR gauge the utilization volumes of these ultrasound procedures and to make sure appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes are developed and assigned accurate Medicare reimbursement rates.

For more information, contact Kevin Grant, ACR economics and health policy director, via email or by phone at (800) 227-5463 (ext. 5657).
