The agency ultimately set January 1, 2018, as the deadline for all ordering physicians to utilize AUC in a qCDSM for every advanced imaging exam, and for furnishing providers to submit documentation of qCDSM use on all Medicare claims for reimbursement.
In his blog on the company's website, Cooke notes that the main difference between the proposed rule and final rule is the option for ordering physicians "to 'attest' that no applicable AUC were found in the qCDSM in addition to an automated response." Although the claims process is currently not specified, more information will be forthcoming in the next two rule-making cycles.
The program was introduced in the CY 2016 Physician Fee Schedule Final Rule, which also specified qCDSM. According to the CMS website, all qCDSM applications are due by March 1, 2017, and the list of qCDSM will be posted by June 30, 2017.
