Imaging 3.0 is a change process being led by the ACR for the field of radiology. It includes a set of technology tools that equip 21st-century radiologists to ensure their key role in evolving health care delivery and payment models—and quality patient care.
The ACR Radiology, Radiation Oncology, and Nuclear Medicine Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC) Network Representatives advocate on behalf of radiology and all radiology subspecialties for fair reimbursement policies at the local Medicare level. By reviewing and commenting on Local Coverage Decisions (LCDs) and policy changes before they are implemented, the CAC networks help ensure members are appropriately reimbursed for medically reasonable and necessary services provided to Medicare patients.
ACR health policy provides objective health services research and analysis to improve government policy and decision-making. The unit produces research reports and analysis on the practice of radiology in the U.S., radiology compensation, imaging utilization, the radiology employment market and more.
