Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the Health Care Financing Administration's (HCFA) new rule on Medicare coverage and payment for bone mass measurements. GAO noted that: (1) the final rule with comment period would provide for uniform coverage of, and payment for, bone mass measurements for certain Medicare beneficiaries for services finished on or after July 1, 1998; (2) the rule would implement section 4106(a) of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997; and (3) HCFA complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
