IL mammogram providers to be paid more if they submit quality data
Starting next year, health facilities and providers in Illinois that perform screening and diagnostic mammograms will receive higher Medicaid reimbursement for the procedures if they voluntarily submit data showing how well they identify small cancers and track women with abnormal mammograms, among other quality measures. The new program expands a project of the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force, formed in 2008 with the aim of reducing deaths from breast cancer for all women and closing a glaring gap in death rates between black and white women.
