Dear Administrator Verma:

The undersigned organizations applaud the actions taken by CMS to date to facilitate and enhance the ability of our healthcare workforce to focus on COVID-19 treatment and relief by providing regulatory flexibilities through the duration of this national emergency. The actions taken by CMS have provided relief to physicians in the form of temporary enrollment flexibilities, the ability to collect advance payments, payment of audio-only telephone calls, the addition of new telehealth benefits, and the waiver of some existing documentation requirements, among other important actions. We believe that these actions will be instrumental in providing a pathway for our physicians and other clinicians to focus on patient care during this public health emergency.
