Stark Law Amendment
A proposed change to a Federal law (The Stark Law) would not allow orthopaedic specialists like Excelsior and others to provide you with the ability to get diagnostic tests like X-rays and MRIs or physical therapy services at your specalist's office. That means you’d be faced with the inconvenience of having to make appointments and travel to other places in the area to have these things done—as opposed to getting them at your specialist's office. That doesn’t make much sense to us. If you agree, we invite you to express your opinion about it to our lawmakers in Washington, D.C. by signing our online petition. We'll make sure the petition gets in the hands of New York State Senators Schumer and Gillibrand.
We, the undersigned, are asking you, our elected representatives, to stop consideration of any measure that would threaten the ability of physicians to own and provide in thier offices diagnostic testing services like X-rays and MRIs, as well as physical therapy services. Please retain the "in-office ancillary exception" to the Stark Law.
