MRC-030: Medicare Coverage

Medicare Coverage: The Wisconsin Medical Society encourages the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to provide coverage for evidence-based screening, testing and specific diagnostic studies under Medicare insurance so that patients may be properly diagnosed and treated for the diseases to which they are at risk. The Society also supports equitable reimbursement for laboratory tests including reimbursement differentials as needed to assure availability and accessibility of laboratory services. (HOD, 0418)
