AIUM Practice Accreditation: An Insurance Standard?

Recently, the AIUM published the following in Sound Waves

Are We Seeing An Ultrasound Accreditation Trend?
November 2, 2016

We may be on the cusp of a growing ultrasound trend. The AIUM recently learned that by September 7, 2017, participating providers in Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey must have achieved practice accreditation to be eligible to receive reimbursement for certain ultrasound procedures. This includes certain musculoskeletal, head and neck, thyroid/parathyroid, and urology procedures. Are other insurers far behind?

How could this impact your practice if these changes expand to Virginia?
