WVHCA Issues Moratorium on Development of CT Services

On May 24, 2006, the West Virginia Health Care Authority issued an Order declaring a moratorium upon the development, acquisition or other establishment of Computed Tomography (CT) services. The replacement of existing CT equipment by existing CT providers is not affected
by this moratorium. This moratorium shall continue until the development of State Health Plan Standards for evaluating CT services, or one hundred eighty days from the declaration of this moratorium, whichever is less.

A short summary of the Order can be found in the May 26, 2006, edition of the WVHCA Newsletter. A complete copy of the Order can be obtained directly from the WVHCA.
