Portable X-Ray (PXR)

A portable X-ray (PXR) supplier is a mobile unit that is neither fixed at any one location nor permanently located in a nursing facility or hospital. However, a PXR must have a base office address. The supplier, its personnel and its equipment must be licensed or registered in accordance with applicable, Federal, state, and local laws. Equipment must meet FDA standards. The performance of x-ray tests must be under the supervision of a physician.  Federal standards for Medicare certification are found at 42 CFR Part 486, Subparts A-C. PXRs are not currently subject to an annual survey visit, but are surveyed consistent with a percentage of total state universe as set by the Medicare budget each Federal Fiscal Year.
