As part of its Patients Over Paperwork initiative, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released an analysis of comments submitted in response to nine Requests for Information (RFIs) included in the Medicare FFS payment rules. CMS received over 2,600 comments in response to these RFIs. The agency grouped the responses into 15 categories, including alternative payment models (APMs) and quality measures and reporting. The agency indicated that it would continue to look for opportunities to implement regulatory and sub-regulatory changes to reduce burdens.
The analysis is available in the April Patients Over Paperwork newsletter which is available here.
