CARE Bill by Denise Porter

On March 13, 2013, Rep. Ed Whitfield, R (KY), introduced the CARE Bill in the House of Representatives as HR 1146.

On March 14, 2013, Rep. David Reichert, R (Wash), introduced the Medicare Access to Radiology Care Act (MARCA) in the House as HR 1148. WVSRT took a vote by email to support MARCA

On March 21, 2013, Sen. Michael Enzi, R (WY), introduced the CARE Bill in the Senate as S 642.

Now it is up to us to contact our members of Congress and ask them to support our profession by cosponsoring these bills. We also need to encourage our senators to sponsor the MARCA and get it introduced in the Senate. We need to ask them to attach the CARE Bill to any other healthcare or Medicare bill in order to get it passed this year. You can contact their representatives or go to the ASRT website.
