Portable X-Ray

Diagnostic X-ray tests (including tests furnished in a place of residence used as the patient’s home) must be under the supervision of a physician. The “residence used as the patient’s home” can include a SNF or hospital that does not provide X-ray services for its patients and arranges for these services through a portable X-ray supplier, such as a mobile unit. However, to be certified as a portable X-ray supplier, the mobile unit can neither be fixed at any one location nor permanently located in a SNF or a hospital.
Despite the mobility of the services, the base office address of the supplier must be identified as the supplier, and the supplier must be approved in each State in which its operation is based. A post office box number does not suffice.
