CRS MEMBER BENEFITS
CRS was created to bring radiologists together and give them a voice in government, allowing them to relate problems and issues to legislative and regulatory policy makers. Members work together in a regulatory environment designed to encompass all areas having a potential impact on radiology in California, such as:
state legislation and regulations
working with Medicare carriers
CRS members and their concerns are represented at the State Capitol in Sacramento. Some of the more recent issues have been:
Physician Self-Referral Prohibition
Hospital Employment of Physicians
The CRS is a chapter of the American College of Radiology (ACR) and serves as a focal point for interaction with other local component societies.
Resources & Guidance
Many members utilize the CRS as a resource for information and direction on legal and practice issues. We provide references to outside attorneys and consultants for specific member assistance.
The CRS Bulletin is a quarterly newsletter designed to keep members abreast of Society activities, events, trends and information. It also provides an excellent, useful, and reliable review of local, state and national legislative activities.
