Sonographers - find out more about Medicare ultrasound services

14 March 2018

We have a Medicare ultrasound services education guide to let you know what you need to do when claiming Medicare.

The guide outlines services and claim requirements for:

  • when you perform multiple ultrasound services
  • when you provide additional services
  • when you substitute a service for the service originally requested
  • requested (R-type) ultrasound services
  • professional supervision for R type eligible services
  • musculoskeletal ultrasound items

To help avoid delays, the guide lists examples of ultrasound services not eligible for a Medicare benefit.     

There are also reminders about what you need to do for reporting and record keeping, including storing requests.

Complete with examples, this is a quick and easy way to refresh your knowledge.
