Patients Over Paperwork - Burden Reduction

“…we are moving the agency to focus on patients first. To do this, one of our top priorities is to ease regulatory burden that is destroying the doctor-patient relationship. We want doctors to be able to deliver the best quality care to their patients.”

“The entire CMS team is committed to doing our part to make sure caring professionals can do their job without the burden of unnecessary requirements.”
