Support Radiologist Assistants! 

The Medicare Access to Radiology Care Act of 2017 was introduced on March 29 by U.S. Sen. John Boozman (R-AR) as S. 769 and on April 5 by Rep. Pete Olson (R-TX) as H.R. 1904. These bills propose a law that amends Medicare reimbursement policy and supervision levels for radiologist assistants to align them with state radiologist assistant laws.

  • Despite our efforts last session, SB 219 did not make it out of the finance committee. We feel confident that there was enough votes in the Senate if our bill got to the floor. However, work is ongoing to prepare for a run in 2019. We have verbal commitment from a senator to sponsor our own bill for the 2019 session. Talks are continuing with the radiation control program. Nevada, we are still here fighting for licensure and we need your continued support!


  • The 2017 Nevada Legislation session ends today and SB219 did not make it this year. Keep supporting the NvSRT and watch for events in the near future!
