ASNR Health Policy Links


Health Policy Resources -- Publications and Multimedia

In a time when imaging reimbursement and healthcare delivery in general are rapidly evolving, your ASNR remains actively engaged. The ASNR Health Policy Committee is involved in numerous coding, reimbursement, and advocacy initiatives related to neuroradiology procedures. The team also works aggressively in order to keep our members informed and updated on health policy issues. As a resource to our members, we have collected the following health policy related podcasts and articles by members of the ASNR HPC and others. We hope you find these useful in preparing your departments and practices for ongoing changes. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reach out to Robert M. Barr, MD, FACR (ASNR HPC Chair) or Rahul Bhala, MBA, MPH (ASNR Director of Economics & Health Policy).
