Date: January 31, 2019
While ASBMR members were visiting their representatives yesterday during the Society’s annual Hill Day in Washington D.C., Senator Susan Collins (R – Maine) reintroduced legislation in the U.S. Senate that would raise the minimum reimbursement rate for office-based DXA tests. Senate Bill S.283 would raise the Medicaid minimum reimbursement rate at $98. The bi-partisan legislation was introduced with the following co-sponsors: Senators Ben Cardin (D-Maryland), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tennessee), Angus King (I-Maine), Shelley Moore Capito (R-West Virginia), Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi) and Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan). We urge all U.S. members to contact their Senators and urge their support of S.283.
