Reducing the Regulatory Burden - SNMMI Comments to CMS

July 13, 2017

In response to the Administration’s request for recommendations on how to reduce the regulatory burden on physicians SNMMI recommended that CMS:

  • Withdraw CMS’s national coverage policies that prospectively ban expanded coverage of positron emission tomography
  • Delay and/or modify the mandate that AUCs be consulted prior to the ordering of advanced imaging tests
  • Use specialty-specific quality measures and do not lump dissimilar specialties into one group
  • Reward Expertise
