Does the RTA proposed legislation that would remove technical payments for freestanding radiation oncology centers from the Medicare physician fee schedule help or hurt radiation oncologists in a freestanding center?  

I would presume (perhaps incorrectly) that hospital-based centers might oppose this for whatever reason, but the proposal is at a minimum intriguing.  Being a solo radiation oncologist in a one-linac practice, I can't tell if this would help or hurt me.  What do you think?
