SIS Joins AMA and 101 Other Societies in Commenting on CMS' Proposed Scope of Practice Regulations

Thursday, January 23, 2020  
On January 16, 2020, SIS and 101 medical societies provided comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding proposed regulations that would weaken or eliminate physician supervision of nonphysician professionals. The letter urges CMS to rely on fact-based resources on the education and training of nonphysician health care professionals, on the overall impact of the cost and quality of care, and on the true impact of state scope of practice laws on access to care across the USA. CMS is also cautioned against positioning scope of practice as an administrative burden, a separate issue facing physicians and other healthcare professionals.
