So you’ve got a sore knee and may need surgery?  Well, you better book your MRI now – for August, 2010.

Last week, VIHA confirmed that there will be a 20 per cent cut in the number of MRI scans done by the health authority this year as part of an effort to write down a projected $45 million deficit.

Last year, the health authority budgeted 18,100 MRIs, but actually performed 22,567. VIHA plans to return to last year’s budgeted level, a drop of more than 4,400 MRIs.

The cuts are already being felt. Patients needing standard MRIs are now being booked for August 2010. {my emphasis}

Of course, before you can have that MRI, you need to find a doctor that will refer you for one.
