Medicare Access to Radiology Care Act 2021 (MARCA) has been introduced!
H.R. 3657 The Medicare Access to Radiology Care Act (MARCA) was introduced by Rep. Michael Doyle of Pennsylvania on 06/01/2021. Senator Boozeman (R-AR) introduced the companion MARCA bill (S. 2641) on August 5.
MARCA would amend title XVIII of the Social Security Act to provide for payment for services performed by ARRT and/or CBRPA certified radiologist assistants to supervising radiologists under the Medicare program.
The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, and the Society for Radiology Physician Extenders are working together to support the enactment of the measure.
MARCA will ensure that regardless of the setting in which the service is performed, hospital, critical access hospital, ambulatory surgical center, or any other facility setting, that complete Medicare reimbursement is paid to the supervising radiologist.
Please contact Congress today!
