RE: Request for Information; Reducing Administrative Burden to Put Patients Over Paperwork (CMS–6082–NC) 

Dear Administrator Verma: 

The Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) is pleased to submit the following comments in response to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Request for Information (RFI) on how to reduce administrative burden. The agency seeks input regarding opportunities to reduce regulatory burdens on physician practices and make the delivery system less bureaucratic and complex. MGMA has long championed administrative simplification and regulatory relief and strongly supports this Administration’s efforts to mitigate or eliminate obsolete and burdensome rules.
