Federal Register Request for Information: Reducing Administrative Burden to Put Patients Over Paperwork
CMS is soliciting comments, suggestions, and initiatives to put patients first and empower them to make the best decisions for themselves and their families. CMS is particularly interested in recommendations on how to achieve the following:
- Improve the accessibility and presentation of CMS requirements for quality reporting, coverage, documentation, or prior authorization;
- Address specific policies or requirements that are overly burdensome, not achievable, or cause unintended consequences in a rural setting;
- Clarify or simplify regulations or operations that pose challenges for beneficiaries dually enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid and those who care for such beneficiaries; and
- Simplify beneficiary enrollment and eligibility determination across programs.
This comment period ends 8/12/2019, and all healthcare providers are encouraged to participate.
