The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently released Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program (QPP) final rules for calendar year 2018 include new details about the imaging clinical decision support (CDS) mandate, also known as the Medicare Appropriate Use Criteria Program.
