Hi all,

has anyone heard anything regarding medicare cutting the revenue for nuclear cardiolite and echo's?
This is becoming a nightmare with the new codes and revenue. It would appear that the Cardiology world is going to be taking a financial hit.
If anyone has any informaiton and would like to share please please please let me know. thanks you. :eek:

In New Jersey it is a 24.77% hit on echos and a 8.92% hit on nuclears. I suppose they think the 2% increase in E&M and the 4% increase in caths will make up for it (it won't!).

Cardiologists have to do some real economizing and think about strategy.
