Physicians are finding imaging machines to be worthy sources of ancillary revenue, but health plans and governments are tightening the reins on scans in the name of cost control.
Ancillary revenue has become a key to financial survival for many physicians in a world of declining reimbursements. For some larger groups, the strategy has revolved around MRI machines and other imaging equipment -- high-ticket items that carry the potential for profitability.
While it has a hefty price tag, in-office imaging equipment has proven to be a convenient option for patients and a positive investment for physicians, so it's no wonder that many groups would want to add that service to their repertoire.
