Guidelines and Suggestions
This edit is set to line reject if a certification is not listed on the provider file when a 3D mammography claim is billed to Medicare. For further information, please refer to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Internet-Only Manual (IOM), Publication 100-04, Chapter 18 - Preventive and Screening Services (PDF, 1.3 MB).
