LAS VEGAS ─ June 20th, 2017 ─ Medical Imaging Corp. (OTC:MEDD), (OTC PINK: MEDD) announced today that it has begun an upgrade of various medical imaging equipment at its sites to meet new federal requirements.
Various federal changes are being made to Medicare reimbursement rates in 2018 with regards to X-ray and CT studies. The new rules will mandate that X-ray machines and images all be in digital format or operators will face a cut back in reimbursement rates. Additionally, new CT requirments, known as XR29, will require a new low dosing software system to ensure the least amount of radiation exposure for patients. In conjunction with these new requirements, the Company's Imaging Centers are undergoing various upgrades.
The Company's Venice location has upgraded its X-ray machine to digital radiography as the first upgrade of equipment. The new digital upgrade has been installed and the machine will now meet all 2018 Medicare guidelines to ensure maximum reimbursement rates. The new DR system allows for faster more effecient X-ray imaging and will be ideal for high volumes in peak season.
"Part of our commitment in providing optimum imaging for our patients, is to ensure we offer the latest technology available and meeting or exceeding government guidelines", said Mitch Geisler, CEO. "We are pleased that this part is now complete and we can now focus on the next phase of equipment upgrades."
