MA Congressional Delegation Weighs in on Physician Face-to-Face Requirement

The Massachusetts Congressional Delegation has stepped up again, this time sending a letter to CMS Administrator Dr. Donald Berwick with concern over the physician face-to-face requirement.

Every member of the delegation – Senators Kerry and Brown, as well as US Reps Markey, Frank, Neal, Olver, McGovern, Tierney, Capuano, Lynch,  Tsongas and Keating – signed onto the letter noting that the Massachusetts health care community has made considerable efforts to comply with the rule, but the paperwork burden and duplicative nature of the requirement are proving problematic and that CMS should consider changes.

The letter itself is available here and the Home Care Alliance greatly appreciates the work and support from the Congressional Delegation.
