VA scales back proposal on nurses reading imaging exams

By Brian Casey, AuntMinnie.com staff writer


December 13, 2016 -- In a victory for radiologists, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has scaled back a proposal that grants expanded duties to advanced-level nurses within the VA system, by removing language that some observers believed could have allowed nurses to perform and interpret medical imaging studies.

In a final rule being published December 14 in the Federal Register, the VA issued a final decision on a proposal to grant what's called "full practice authority" to nurses who have advanced training. Designed to address an ongoing personnel shortage at the VA, the proposal gives some nurses expanded responsibilities in areas such as radiology, anesthesiology, and pathology.





Global Perspectives from  Leading the Way- International Radiographer Advanced Practice Conference in Sheffield England

Meeting with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

The SRPE, represented by Jason Barrett, ACR, and ARRT met with staff of CMS on September 8th to discuss physician supervision levels for RAs (RRAs and RPAs). The purpose of the meeting was to urge CMS to enable radiologists to utilize the RAs under a lower physician supervision standard for services which involve supervision levels, instead of the current "personal" level of supervision, by creating a modifier or by whatever mechanism CMS deems appropriate. The organizations expressed the RA’s education, training, and experience enables the RA to provide a higher level of service to radiologists and their patients, but this higher level of service can be meaningful only if it frees the physician from unnecessarily having to be present in the same room as the RA.

Stakeholders also expressed that we are NOT asking for billing status for the RA and we are not asking for higher levels of reimbursement to physicians who employ RAs. CMS requested some additional information and we are preparing the proposed rule for inclusion in next year’s federal register. The first we should hear from CMS in May or June 2017.
