April 10, 2014 - The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) applauds Congress for its action yesterday in passing historic legislation linking physician payment to appropriate use criteria, thus shifting focus to a more evidence-based health care system. The Senate voted to pass H.R. 4302, the Protecting Access to Medicare Act of 2014, which also passed the House of Representatives by voice vote on March 27. These changes were included as part of the most recent temporary patch to the Sustainable Growth Rate system, which pushes the deadline for SGR repeal to April 1, 2015.
