The Too Sick to be in the Hospital Test
You have got to love it when the government runs things! Medicare will not pay for a pet/ct unless it is done as an outpatient. So if the patient is really sick from their cancer and is in the hospital, they cant have the test even though the results of the test will help determine how best to treat them so that they can get better and leave the hospital! I wish the politicians who come up with these policies had to come down and explain it to the patients and their families. I know that it would be evil for me to think that someday they are the ones who need the pet/ct and cant get it.
