HRS Submits Comments on MRI Medicare Coverage Policy

The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR), and the American College of Radiology (ACR) submitted a joint letter commenting on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) reconsideration for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

The revised Medicare coverage policy includes provisions, with some exceptions, that would cover patients with a non-conditional cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) who need to undergo MRI.
