The LFSA is in the process of assessing the extent to which Whole Body MRI (WBMRI) is recognized as standard of care for LFS surveillance. LFS membership and medical advisors report diverse experiences with health insurance coverage and payment of Whole Body MRI (WBMRI) as LFS surveillance.

As a result of anecdotal findings regarding insurance coverage for WBMRI, the LFSA is fielding a survey with patients and providers to assess their experiences. The goal of the survey is to understand the extent of health plan coverage and payment for WBMRI as surveillance for LFS. The intention of the LFSA board is to use the data from the survey to understand the next steps on education and awareness with insurance carriers and providers regarding WBMRI as standard of care for LFS surveillance.
