ACR Medicaid Network representatives and economics and health policy staff monitor local Medicaid programs and review local coverage policies. In addition, the network's relationships with large, multistate Medicaid MCOs allow ACR to have valued input in reviewing and commenting on medical coverage policies.

The ACR will have the potential to significantly impact and re-emphasize the value of radiology in quality patient care by targeting medical policy and emphasizing medical necessity, ACR Appropriateness Criteria, Practice Parameters and Technical Guidelines, and Clinical Decision Support.
