ACR issues 'anti-markup' recommendations

The American College of Radiology (ACR) is recommending that members who interpret diagnostic studies for clinicians, independent diagnostic testing facilities (IDTFs), and other providers should heed the decision by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to delay implementing most of its tighter "anti-markup" provisions until January 1, 2009.

CMS recently decided to "study the issues further," and provide either more guidance or a new regulation later in 2008, according to the Reston, VA-based organization.
