Opportunity for Doctors to Tell Medicare How to Reduce Burdens

Posted in Medicare and Medicaid

On June 6, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a request for information (RFI) for ideas on putting patients over paperwork and reducing the administrative burdens on healthcare providers. The ROI is scheduled to be published in the Federal Register on June 11. As part of CMS’ continuing Patients over Paperwork initiative, CMS is seeking, “… additional public comment on ideas for regulatory, subregulatory, policy, practice and procedural changes that reduce unnecessary administrative burdens for clinicians, providers, patients and their families.” CMS explains that through these efforts, “we aim to increase quality of care, lower costs, improve program integrity, and make the health care system more effective, simple, and accessible.” The ROI lists numerous topics to respond to. Comments can be submitted up to August 12, 2019 to http://www.regulations.gov and must contain file code CMS-6082-NC.
