Medicare Part B expenditures -- which include payment for advanced imaging services -- are expected to continue growing at an unsustainable rate.

This report examined the prevalence of advanced imaging self-referral and its effect on Medicare spending. It discusses(1) trends in the number of and expenditures for self-referred and non-self-referred advanced imaging services; (2) how provision of these services differs among providers on the basis of whether they self-refer; and (3) implications of self-referral for Medicare spending. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
