Medicare set to expand coverage of PET (positron emission tomography) scans but only for a limited list of applications

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) has decided to expand Medicare coverage of positron emission tomography (PET) scans to include the diagnosis or management of certain types of cancer. However, the agency is proposing to cover fewer and far narrower indications than were recommended by patient advocates, trade groups and some clinicians at the HCFA-sponsored meeting in January.
