Statement by MGMA's Anders Gilberg, Senior Vice President, Government Affairs on CMS's RFI on Reducing Administrative Burden
"CMS’s Patients over Paperwork initiative has been in place since 2017 and the results have been modest. In fact, 86% of MGMA members reported an increase in regulatory burden last year.
"There is a tremendous amount the administration can do to reduce the regulatory burden on medical practices. CMS has gathered more than enough feedback from the physician community at this point and should focus on implementation over information.
"MGMA’s response to the RFI highlights opportunities to improve the Quality Payment Program (MIPS & APMs), prior authorization, Stark Law, and countless administrative standards."
