The year 2019 featured extensive debates on transforming the United States multipayer health care system into a single-payer system. At a time when reimbursement structures are in flux and potential changes in government may affect health care, it is important for neuroradiologists to remain informed on how emerging policies may impact their practices. The purpose of this article is to examine potential ramifications for neuroradiologist reimbursement with the Medicare for All legislative proposals. An institution-specific analysis is presented to illustrate general Medicare for All principles in discussing issues applicable to practices nationwide.
