The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued a Request for Information to solicit new ideas from the medical community on how to continue the progress of the Patients Over Paperwork initiative to reduce administrative regulatory burden under Medicare and Medicaid programs. Regulatory, policy or practice management recommendations to further minimize burden and improve administrative efficiency may include, but are not limited to the following areas:

- Modification or streamlining of reporting requirements, documentation requirements, or processes to monitor compliance to CMS rules and regulations

- Aligning of Medicare, Medicaid and other payer coding, payment and documentation requirements, and processes

- Enabling of operational flexibility, feedback mechanisms, and data sharing that would enhance patient care, support the clinician-patient relationship, and facilitate individual preferences

- New recommendations regarding when and how CMS issues regulations and policies and how CMS can simplify rules and policies for beneficiaries, clinicians, and providers.

You can submit a comment directly to CME, or contact OPSO with your suggestions. CMS will accept comments until Aug. 12, 2019, and will consider all input as future regulatory proposals and policy guidance is developed.
