    The Honorable Chiquita Brooks-LaSure
    Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
    U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
    Hubert H. Humphrey Building, Room 445–G
    200 Independence Avenue, SW
    Washington, DC 20201

    Dear Administrator Brooks-LaSure:

    The report accompanying the House-passed fiscal year 2022 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Funding Bill includes language requesting a report from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the implementation of the Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) Program, including program challenges and successes. The language further directs CMS to consult with stakeholders, including medical professional societies and developers of AUC and clinical guidelines, when formulating its report. The undersigned organizations are deeply concerned with the breadth and complexity of the AUC Program and request ample opportunity, including but not limited to a special stakeholder forum, in the months ahead to engage with the agency as it prepares its report to Congress.
