190.009 Medicaid Payment for Diagnostic Tests

190.009

Medicaid Payment for Diagnostic Tests: The Texas Medical Association voted to use all available means to have Medicaid rescind its rules which do not allow payment for certain diagnostic tests performed on the same day, even when it is in the best interest of the patient, often requiring the patient to return a second time to obtain a definitive diagnosis causing undue hardship on patients who are disabled or have difficulty obtaining transportation (Res. 28I, p 186, I-93; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 6-A-03; reaffirmed CSE Rep. 1-A-13).
