WEST JORDAN, Utah, Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 went into effect in January of this year. The law requires CT scanners to be compliant with NEMA Standard XR-29. BC Technical has a solution for compliance that's cost-effective and customized for your equipment. To learn more, visit http://bctechnical.com/xr-29-compliance/.
The penalty for non-compliance is reduced reimbursement on certain diagnostic CT scans. While 2016 saw a 5% reduction, the penalties are set to triple in 2017 for a total reduction of 15%. BC Technical's solution allows users to avoid the penalties and extend the life of their existing CT scanner.
Many older CT Scanners do not include all of the attributes required of NEMA Standard XR-29 and software/hardware upgrades are not available from the OEM. Purchasing an expensive, new CT scanner from the OEM is not your only option. BC Technical's low-cost, customized XR-29 solution makes older systems XR-29 compliant in one single-source solution, allowing you to extend the life of your scanner.
"As the healthcare landscape evolves, we will continue to provide creative and innovative solutions for our customers," explains Mark Alvarez, President and CEO of BC Technical. "We're committed to providing high-quality solutions at a lower cost."
BC Technical has been diligently educating people on what options exist for XR-29 compliance, and encourages them to ask the right questions when choosing a partner.
