Cardinal Health representatives understand local and national standards for reimbursement. They work with customers to develop the appropriate coding and language to maximize reimbursement. Cardinal Health’s PET Foundations™ program offers a particularly thorough reimbursement analysis program to PET customers.

Cardinal Health also partners with others in providing up-to-date reimbursement information. For more information visit: The Society of Nuclear Medicine.

Note: The Society of Nuclear Medicine has published a very useful spreadsheet (available in both .pdf and Excel formats) listing all the CPT/HCPCS codes used in Nuclear Medicine, their descriptions, APC assignment and payment rates under HOPPS 2004. Find this spreadsheet at:

Also note: The March, 2004 Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology offers a comprehensive article on FDG PET Reimbursement from Cardinal Health's own Jim Bietendorf:
