One healthcare provider, Anthem, has created a new policy when it comes to MRI and CT scans. This provider will no longer cover non-urgent scans performed in either a hospital or outpatient facility will no longer be covered. The response is mixed from all sides.
Some worry on what will constitute as 'non-urgent' and others view this a play to reduce services to patients. On the other hand, some see this as a method to curb over-scanning and unnecessary costs. As with most things, there are truths on all sides. At the end of the day, what matters is providing the best patient care.
At Sound Imaging, we are curious to see how this new healthcare policy will play out for patients and providers. We aim to always keep healthcare innovative and efficient, especially when it comes to MRI devices. Create a relaxing experience for your patients with MRI Visors or MRI Stereo.
