Policy Guidance Help System logo

If a facility’s MQSA certificate expires before it has been reaccredited, it must immediately stop performing mammography or it may be subject to civil money penalties of up to $10,000 per violation per day 42 U.S.C. 263b(h)(3). Before the MQSA certificate expires, a facility should contact its accreditation body to discuss its options for continuing to perform mammography.
