Senate Finance Committee Abandons Proposed Equipment Utilization Rate Increase

The Senate Finance Committee abandoned the proposed increase to the Medicare utilization rate assumption for advanced diagnostic imagining equipment priced at $1 million or more. The potential rate hike was included as a provision in a proposed free trade agreement and was meant to pay for health care benefits and job training for U.S. workers displaced as a result of the trade agreements.
