ABSTRACT
The article discusses a policy issued by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) which stipulates how and for what services physicians and beneficiaries may request prior coverage determinations from Medicare contractors. The rule states that a physician may request such determinations on behalf of his patients provided that they are Medicare beneficiaries who have consented to the physician making the request. Limitations of Medicare coverage and documentation requirements are also presented.
