Issue Background


In the coming weeks the Massachusetts Legislature will be considering bills aimed at reducing health care costs.

Massachusetts R.T.s need to contact state lawmakers to ensure that any bills allowing non-R.T. health care providers to supervise or perform “diagnostic tests” clearly state that performance or supervision of “diagnostic imaging tests” are not included in this definition.

The MSRT needs you to contact lawmakers today to make sure that diagnostic imaging is performed by qualified R.T.s and that procedures are supervised by licensed practitioners.

Keep patient care first and foremost in lawmakers’ minds by promoting cost savings initiatives that do not jeopardize patient health and safety.
