Description

The Wall Street Journal says the feud between doctors and managed-care insurers over reimbursements for mammograms has led to the shutting down of many imaging centers. This despite the fact that there is a growing demand for new facilities. The situation is so bad that women have to wait anywhere from two to six months to get an appointment with a radiologist. Many imaging centers are dropping managed-care providers because their rate of reimbursement barely covers the cost of the tests.
