Ask Congress to Support DXA Legislation!
Date: July 27, 2011
Congress has taken the first steps necessary to extend the current level of Medicare funding for DXA for another two years. In the US House, Representative Michael Burgess (R-TX) introduced HR 2020 with seven co-sponsors. In the Senate, Olympia Snowe (R-ME) introduced the same bill (SB 1096) with four co-sponsors. Without this legislation, Medicare rates for DXA will drop on January 1, 2012 from the current national average of $98 to $47. Contact your Congressional delegation today and urge them to support these bills.
