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:
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
2004. Find this spreadsheet at: http://interactive.snm.org/index.cfm?PageID=1984&RPID=273
