CareSelect Imaging – Open Access.

CareSelect Imaging – Open Access is a freely available web application accessible by providers and their proxies to consult Clinical Decision Support and generate the required AUC Information for a payable claim for all advanced imaging exams as required by CMS PAMA Mandate starting 2022.

Beginning January 1, 2022, Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA) requires practitioners ordering advanced imaging exams for Medicare Part B beneficiaries consult Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) via a qualified Clinical Decision Support mechanism (qCDSM).
