Vermont radiologists made their opinions known about a proposed 21% cut to Medicaid reimbursement, and the legislature lowered the reduction to just 2%.

The Vermont Medical Society and a group of radiologists learned of the proposed changes in December with just eight days to comment. They successfully lobbied to receive a hearing and managed to voice their concerns.

Last year, the state agency that administers the Medicaid program cut pay to radiologists by 25%, according to an article at VTDigger.org.

A commissioner for the Department of Vermont Health Access said the intent was to bring reimbursements to radiologists down to the level of other specialists, the article states.
