On August 1, 2013, Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-San Francisco/San Mateo), along with Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA), Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Ranking Member, and Dina Titus (D-NV), introduced HR 2914, the “Promoting Integrity in Medicare Act of 2013” (PIMA) in the House of Representatives. The bill would cut unnecessary Medicare spending by hundreds of millions annually without reducing the essential care that seniors rely on. The bill has the support of the Alliance for Integrity in Medicare (AIM), a broad coalition of medical societies committed to ending the practice of inappropriate physician self-referral and focused on improving patient care and preserving valuable Medicare resources.

Support for The Bill:
American Clinical Laboratory Association
American College of Radiology
American Physical Therapy Association
American Society for Clinical Pathology
American Society for Radiation Oncology
Association for Quality Imaging, the College of American Pathologists
Radiology Business Management Association
