April 25, 2018

eviCore, one of the leading medical benefits management companies in the U.S.,  has updated its coverage guidelines for whole-body thyroid imaging. eviCore cites SNMMI's practice guideline as the reasoning/evidence to support the change to add thyroid imaging coverage. Specifically, eviCore added "whole-body thyroid nuclear scan post-thyroidectomy" and "whole-body thyroid nuclear scan within two weeks of RAI therapy."

eviCore also added the new CPT Category III Code for cardiac PET, CPT +0482T absolute quantitation of myocardial blood flow, positron emission tomography (PET), rest and stress.
