Call to Action - CMS Student Documentation Proposed Rule

 Monday, July 29, 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the proposed rule for the calendar year 2020 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.

 “To reduce burden, we are proposing broad modifications to the documentation policy so that physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and certified nurse-midwives could review and verify (sign and date), rather than re-documenting, notes made in the medical record by other physicians, residents, nurses, students, or other members of the medical team.” 

Please submit your supportive comments through the AANP Advocacy Center. The comment period will be open until September 27, 2019.
