ASTRO submits letter to Ohio Department of Health
On July 11, 2014, the Radiation-Generating Equipment Committee of the Ohio Department of Health held a hearing to discuss a variance request by a dermatologist to the current regulations governing the use of superficial radiation therapy (SRT). Current Ohio regulations only permit radiation oncologists to use SRT. ASTRO wrote a letter in opposition of the variance request, which was read at the hearing. This hearing was informational only, and no recommendations or decisions were made.

Ohio Department of Health Denies SRT Variance Request
The Ohio Department of Health has denied a variance request by a dermatologist to the current regulations governing the use of superficial radiation therapy (SRT). Current Ohio regulations permit only radiation oncologists to use SRT. ASTRO wrote a letter in opposition to the request.

Pennsylvania

State Captain:

Felicia Snead 

Local News:

On July 21, ASTRO urged Pennsylvania Medicaid officials to reconsider a recently issued Medicaid policy that prevents radiation oncologists from billing for professional services rendered in the outpatient setting, specifically for weekly radiation therapy management and clinical treatment planning. ASTRO recommends that the policy be revised to preserve patient access to critical cancer treatments. ASTRO noted that the new policy conflicts with common billing practices, including Pennsylvania’s own code for payment.

ASTRO submits letter to Texas State Sunset Advisory Commission
On June 25, 2014, ASTRO submitted a letter to the Texas State Sunset Advisory Commission opposing the Commission’s recommendation that the state no longer license radiologic technologists and medical physicists. The Commission’s rationale for this recommendation was that licensing radiologic technologists and medical physicists was not generating enough revenue for the state. ASTRO’s letter emphasized that rescinding these licensing requirements could adversely compromise patient safety.
