Implementation Delay for Split-Billed Radiology Services Rate Adjustment

April 14, 2020

An article published in the March 2020 Medi-Cal Bulletin titled “Split-Billed Radiology Services Reimbursement Rate Adjustment” announced that reimbursement rates for split-billed radiology services will be adjusted to align with Medicare’s 2017 split-billed updates.

The update did not occur as scheduled and implementation of this rate adjustment has been temporarily delayed.

Providers should continue to submit claims in a timely manner. An Erroneous Payment Correction (EPC) will be implemented to reprocess affected claims.
