Simplifying Documentation Requirements

Posted by Linda Collins | April 12, 2018

CMS is implementing the Documentation Requirements Simplification Initiative. According to Medicare, the purpose of this initiative is to reduce improper payments and appeals and allow more time to focus on patients.

Recently, updates from the committee managing this initiative included clarifying proof of delivery requirements and signature requirements.

Now CMS is asking for feedback and ideas.  You may email suggestions about what area(s) should be focused on next. You may also provide feedback on which documentation requirements are most problematic or confusing. The email to use is [email protected].
