CMS Seeks Additional Input on Reducing Administrative Burden

This week the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)​ requested new and innovative ideas for reducing administrative burdens for health care providers and patients as part of its Patients over Paperwork initiative. Specifically, the agency is seeking feedback on several key areas. These key areas include ways to present and access CMS quality reporting, coverage, documentation and prior-authorization requirements; address 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 dual eligible beneficiaries enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid; and how to simplify beneficiary enrollment and eligibility determination. CMS published the request for information in the June 11 Federal Register. Comments are due Aug. 12.  ​
