Idaho’s medical imaging laws have undergone a dramatic change since they were first passed in 2013.
Now, it’s on the verge of being passed again, but the Senate has delayed its vote on a medical imaging bill for months.
The state Senate approved the bill Thursday, but it faces an uphill battle in the House.
House leaders said they’re concerned about a number of provisions in the bill that would affect Idahoans who have a serious medical condition and that they’d be voting against the bill.
The bills passed in the Senate and House are expected to be reconciled before the end of the week.
The medical imaging package includes measures aimed at addressing problems with the state’s healthcare system, including:Imaging for people with serious medical conditions, including cancer and other severe illnesses, would be expanded.
It would allow patients to receive imaging at the emergency room or doctor’s office, where they can see an image of a patient’s body to evaluate the extent of their condition, and to compare it with images of other people’s bodies.
The bill would allow Idahoans with certain serious medical problems to have their medical images reviewed at a hospital.
It also includes a bill that could give hospitals the right to take a patient with a brain tumor and perform scans without a medical clearance, a proposal that has been blocked by Republican Gov.
C.L. “Butch” Otter.
The House is expected to vote on the bill in the coming days.
The Senate passed the bill on a voice vote on Thursday.
The bill passed the Senate by a narrow margin of 20 to 21.
But it faced strong opposition from the House, which passed a measure to require hospital-based imaging.
The vote on Idaho’s bills is expected shortly after midnight.
