As you look into your cath lab options you're sure to read all kinds of material about features, comparisons, and the logistics of a cath lab project. All of these things will have a hand in determining which system you choose but, ultimately, will depend upon your facility's budget scenario.

This is where a multi-year financing plan comes in. If the system that best fits your site's needs is outside of your annual capital equipment budget, consider financing it across several years. The right plan could eliminate the need to compromise on features that increase your OR capabilities and efficiency.

Radiology Reimbursement Calculator: Estimate your Imaging Revenue

Posted by Randy Bolenbaugh

May 7, 2014 9:00:00 AM


As the world of medical insurance continues to rollercoaster through changes, reimbursement rates are often difficult to track and even more challenging to predict. Reimbursement dollars create a large percentage of revenue for any imaging facility and being able to accurately forecast income is a key piece to a successful pro forma and business plan.

To help in this area, Block Imaging has created an imaging costs reimbursement calculator and forecasting tool using  2014 reimbursement rates (radiology only: HCPCS codes 70000 – 79445). This tool will allow you to locate studies across all modalities and then see the reimbursement rate for each study (in addition to the technical and professional component). You can then enter estimated scans per month for each study and visualize monthly revenue as well as multi-year forecasts. You can also compare rates for Medicare/Medicaid vs. rates for a private insurer.
