SIS and Many Medical Organizations Suggest Medicare Changes

Tuesday, October 17, 2017  

SIS, along with 67 U.S. national specialty medical organizations and 51 U.S. state-level organizations, signed on to a letter urging Congress to enact legislation to ensure that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) retains flexibility in implementing the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) to effectively utilize reimbursement as an effective instrument to improve healthcare quality and value.

The letter recommends extending several specific features via statutory changes or clarification before CMS releases the proposed rules for the program’s third year of operation.
