This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Blue Shield is conducting a survey of X-ray equipment and radiology procedures used by Pennsylvania healthcare providers. The first in a series of quality reviews of medical procedures planned by Blue Cross under its Quality Based Health Care Management (QBM) programme, the review is being undertaken following reports of serious deficiencies in the quality of X- rays by some providers in the State. Blue Shield reimbursed almost 3,400 providers in Pennsylvania over $163 million in 1994 for X-ray procedures.
