Portable X-Ray Services must meet requirements of the federal Medicare Program. Portable X-Ray Services are not state licensed nor are they accredited.
The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) directs State health agencies or other appropriate agencies to determine if health care entities meet federal standards. This helping function is termed "provider certification." Health Facility Compliance Group staff is responsible for certifying Portable X-Ray Services. For more information on the certification process, refer to Rules/Regulation link on right-hand side menu box or contact your zone office. See the City-Region-Zone List to find your appropriate zone office.
The audit tool is provided for use by your facility in preparation for a Medicare certification survey. We suggest you conduct an audit of your facility’s compliance to federal standards prior to the scheduled or unannounced survey.
