CMS Changes Requirements for Small Physicians

NRHA applauds the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recent efforts to help rural Americans, small practices, and underserved communities struggling to find care options. CMS confirmed yesterday that the agency will increase exemptions for small practices under the Medicare Quality Payment Program and expand new bonus payments. Additionally, CMS will allow doctors in small practices to join as a group under the payment scheme.
CMS Administrator Seema Verma announced just a few weeks ago that she would be working with stakeholders like NRHA to reduce regulatory burdens on all providers to improve patient care. We look forward to seeing further initiatives from CMS and thank Administrator Verma and the agency for their hard work to help small practices keep their doors open to provide care.

The final rule released yesterday can be found here.
