Fee Schedule Lookup Details

Radiopharmaceutical Reimbursement

National Government Services has reviewed the radiopharmaceutical pricing methodology set forth in the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003, Section 303(h) which states that for dates of service on or after 1/1/2005 radiopharmaceutical payment allowance limits are not subject to ASP. Contractors are to determine radiopharmaceutical payment allowance limits based on the methodology in place as of November 2003.

Claim Submission Guidelines

Claims submitted for radiopharmaceuticals (HCPCS codes A9500–A9700) that are not priced by CMS or NGS must include either invoice information or a copy of the actual invoice for pricing purposes.

For electronic claims, report the invoice information in the electronic Documentation Field (Loop 2300, NTE Segment [header level] or Loop 2400, NTE Segment [line level]).

The name of the radiopharmaceutical and the exact dosage administered must appear in the Documentation Field.

  • If the charge matches the actual invoice cost, note "Actual Invoice Cost" in the Documentation Field.
  • If you are submitting a charge greater than the actual invoice cost, please include the following information in the Documentation Field, using these abbreviations:
    • Des = Description/Name of agent (e.g., Des=TC99m MDP)
    • QS = Quantity shipped (e.g., QS=100 mci)
    • TA = Total amount charged for quantity shipped (e.g., TA=$57.40)
    • UP = Unit Price (e.g., UP = $0.57 per mci) (Optional)
    • DG = Dosage given (e.g., DG=25 mci)
