Description
 
Rapid spending growth for Medicare Part B has heightened concerns about the long-range fiscal sustainability of Medicare. Spending on physician imaging services (PIS) has been one of the fastest-growing sets of services paid for under the Medicare Part B physician fee schedule. By 2006 about 2/3 of spending on PIS occurred in physician office settings -- an indictor of a shift toward providing imaging services in physician’s offices. This report: (1) examines the extent to which fees for performing imaging tests were affected by the cap in 2007 on Medicare’s hospital outpatient prospective payment system; and (2) analyzes trends in expenditures and utilization for PIS under Medicare’s fee-for-service program through 2007. Charts and tables.
