Patients Over Paperwork

What is Patients over Paperwork?

At CMS, our top priority is putting patients first. CMS Administrator Seema Verma launched the “Patients over Paperwork” initiative, which is in accord with President Trump’s Executive Order that directs federal agencies to “cut the red tape” to reduce burdensome regulations. Through “Patients over Paperwork,” CMS established an internal process to evaluate and streamline regulations with a goal to reduce unnecessary burden, to increase efficiencies, and to improve the beneficiary experience.  In carrying out this internal process, CMS is moving the needle and removing regulatory obstacles that get in the way of providers spending time with patients.
