Medicare and Medicaid Programs: Regulatory Provisions to Promote Program Efficiency, Transparency, and Burden Reduction

05-08-2014 10:08

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has removed the provision in the Conditions for Coverage (CfCs) requiring ASCs to have a radiologist on their medical staff. ASCA has long advocated for this change noting that requiring ASCs to have a radiologist on staff does not make sense given that radiologic services in an ASC are generally limited to intra-operative guidance that does not require interpretation by a radiologist. Additionally, ASCs have reported difficulty in finding radiologists that are willing to be part of their medical staff.
