    To obtain objective cost data to use in a formal comment on the proposed changes in Medicare reimbursement, a mail survey of vascular laboratories was carried out.


    Data were received from 142 facilities.

    Patients receiving Medicare made up 64% of the volume, and duplex scanning accounted for 78% of the work.


    The mean cost per scan, exclusive of physician payments, was $181.

    When compared with the mean allowable reimbursement under the 1992 Fee Schedule of $113, this represents a loss of $68 for each duplex scan performed on a patient receiving Medicare.
