Received a Solicitation for EDX Services? Send it to AANEM

9/3/2019
 
The AANEM Policy Department is seeking flyers, brochures, emails and any other solicitations sent out to physicians offering “get rich quick schemes” involving EDX testing. AANEM has been working with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), law enforcement, and the US Congress to combat EDX fraud and abuse and to establish quality standards for EDX testing but we need your help. If you receive solicitations that appear to be encouraging fraudulent testing, please scan and send them to the policy department at policy@aanem.org.
 
According to AANEM Health Policy Director, Millie Suk, JD, MPP, “Providing these decision-makers with real-world examples that demonstrate the national scope of the problem helps drive home our position that we need a solution that goes beyond the simple ‘pay-and-chase’ model. We need to protect patients and stop the fraud and abuse up front.”

Lawmakers, in particular, are actively interested in seeing examples from their own districts so if you come across any solicitations offering substandard EDX testing, often using technologists without proper supervision, please pass them along to the AANEM policy department.
