Kay, yes and no. "I read it had to be in the first year as a member...??" It has to be ordered at the first Medicare visitL IPPE)" Not necessarily the first year as a member.
"Have not been previously furnished a AAA screening under the Medicare Program"; which does not routinely pay for screening exams so this is unlikely.
I think this clearly establishes the concept that Medicare only pays for screening AAA if it is ordered during that initial visit, yes, the first year as a member, but more importantly on the INITIAL VISIT.To unsubscribe or search other topics on UVM Flownet link to: http://list.uvm.edu/archives/uvmflownet.html
