PHOENIX - What impact will recent regulatory changes have on the practice of radiology in the U.S.? We caught up with Rebecca Farrington of Healthcare Administrative Partners (HAP USA) at this week's AHRA 2022 meeting.
Farrington is chief revenue officer of HAP USA, and she follows the federal regulatory scene closely. She explains the recently issued Medicare Physician Fee Schedule for 2023, which includes cuts to radiology payments, as well as the recent decision by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to postpone -- again -- the start date for its requirement that advanced imaging exams be ordered using appropriate use criteria (AUC) and clinical decision support (CDS).
