    Default Orders for mammograms

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know if you have to have an order for a screening mammogram for other payers? I know from cms website that per medicare you do not need one but i am trying to find information on whether or not you need one for any other insurance company or is this a federal law that states you do not need an order for the screening? where can i find that information at?
