    Re: Center for Program Integrity. Request for Information on the Future of Program Integrity

    Dear Administrator Verma,

    The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) is pleased to submit the following response to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) Center for Program Integrity Request for Information on the Future of Program Integrity. We applaud the Agency for reaching out to the industry to identify opportunities to improve program integrity. We caution CMS, however, that decreasing access to care for Medicare beneficiaries and increasing provider burden through the imposition of challenging prior authorization requirements is not the appropriate pathway to promoting integrity in the Medicare program.
