Radiology Prior Authorization

Infinx CDSM Module

If you already use our artificial intelligence driven Prior Authorization Software, you are familiar with how easy it is to obtain timely preauthorizations from commercial payers. Our new CDSM Module can now help ensure you obtain certified compliance certificates for advanced imaging orders covered by public payers Medicare and Medicaid.

Currently, we are the only solution on the market conditionally approved by CMS that has developed a comprehensive CDSM solution specifically catering to imaging providers.

New CDSM Mandate

Starting January 1, 2020, physicians ordering specific advanced imaging tests for Medicare/Medicaid patients must confirm their treatment decision by consulting appropriate use criteria (“AUC”) with a Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services (“CMS”) approved electronic clinical decision support tool (“CDSM”) pursuant to the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (“PAMA”) passed in July 2014.

Proof of such consult must then be provided to the rendering physician who submits it to Medicare and Medicaid along with the claim for reimbursement after the imaging test is performed. In 2021, reimbursements will be withheld if it is determined that the ordering physician did not consult a CDSM tool before ordering the procedure.
