The Access to Medical Imaging Coalition is urging Congress not to support Medicare requirements for imaging prior authorization included in President Barack Obama's proposed budget. The program will "not only produce zero cost savings, it will insert an artificial middleman between physicians and their patients," said coalition Executive Director Tim Trysla. The AMIC is calling instead for the use of appropriateness criteria developed by physicians, as well as decision-support systems.
