Big News out of CMS Today on DME
As all of you know, AANP's Federal Health Policy office has been working to ensure the CMS face-to-face encounter requirements mandated by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) for certain items of DME does not go into effect on October 1, 2013. Today, we are happy to announce that CMS has issued another delay in implementation here. As the release states, the delay will continue until CMS makes further comments sometime in calendar year 2014. We will continue to pursue a legislative resolution to permanently solve this problem. Thank you for all of your continued dialogue with your Members of Congress. CMS clearly heard your concerns and has responded with this additional delay.
Thank you again for your advocacy!
