MARCA Legislation News

MARCA will ensure that regardless of the setting in which the radiology service is performed; hospital, critical access hospital, ambulatory surgical center or any other facility setting, that services provided by a radiologist assistant supervised by a radiologist as part of a radiologist-led patient care team receive complete Medicare reimbursement.

The enactment of MARCA means greater timeliness, accuracy and quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries. RAs allow radiologists to devote more focused, uninterrupted time reviewing and interpreting complex medical images and providing timely diagnoses that will result in efficient, appropriate medical treatment. Patients need, and deserve, this level of care, and Medicare beneficiaries are certainly entitled to this level of care as well.

Ask federal lawmakers asking to support and cosponsor Medicare recognition of the radiologist assistant.
