(DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING) -- Maryland Court Upholds Self-Referral Ban

“It’s big, because it shows that the intent of the legislature was to control utilization and provide high quality [care],” said Alan Kaye, chair of the radiology department at Bridgeport Hospital, Yale New Have Health System in Bridgeport, Conn. “It’s a victory for radiology and for patients.”

The Maryland Court of Appeals this week affirmed a lower court ruling that bars physicians from referring patients for MRI, CT, and radiotherapy procedures conducted by someone in the same group practice.
