Really?  15 yr old technology is state of the art?  They have a new
state of the art S2000 or SC2000 for cardiac.

Hello everybody

 

 I would like to know some info about current state of the art vascular
machines that are in the market. Our manager requested me to get some
input from you experienced guys. 

Thank you.

	Barb,
	
	From CMS:
	---
	Medicare covers this one-time screening ultrasound if you get a
referral for it 
	as a result of your "Welcome to Medicare" physical exam. You
must receive 
	the physical exam and the screening ultrasound referral (not the
ultrasound 
	exam itself) within the first twelve months you have Medicare
Part B.
	---
	
	The code is G0389 -- Ultrasound, B-scan and/or real time with
image 
	documentation; for abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) screening
	
	This is crosswalked from the general ultrasound code 76775, but
allows 
	payment without clinical indication (and helps CMS count how
many of these 
	are done). 
	SVU, SVS and the other National Aneurysm Alliance members are
still working 
	to remove some of the limitations for availability of this test.
For instance, 
	eliminating the Welcome To Medicare requirement and making the
screening 
	available to anyone 65-75 as a one-time beneft, and allowing
women without 
	family history to be eligible. 
	
	Bill Johnson's link posted previously is a great summary of the
SAAAVE Act 
	details.
	
	Best,
	Dave Parlato
	SVU Advocacy Chair
