SCCT's mission is to serve as an advocate for cardiac CT in all interactions with public and private payers, government policymakers, and the health care industry at large, including manufacturers and other stakeholders. We work to educate payers about the value of cardiac CT in order to improve coverage of the technology. We also seek to achieve more appropriate reimbursement rates that accurately reflect the costs of providing the service. This mission cannot be undertaken by the organization alone. It is imperative that we have the support of each individual member to advocate for this technology not only with stakeholders in the payer community, but also with decision-makers at their individual institutions.
