Assessing the Future Impact of Medicare Regulations on Radiology and Radiation Oncology

The landscape of Medicare payment policy will be changing over the coming years as a result of actions taken in 2014 through the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) and the Protecting Access to Medicare Act (PAMA).  The MPFS for 2015 contained fewer changes to current payment policy than it did proposals deferred for future consideration.  The Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014 (PAMA) was initiated to avoid the significant Medicare payment reduction imposed by the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) provision in the Medicare law, but it also contained other provisions affecting payment under the Medicare program.
