New Initiative Focuses on Reducing Medicare Providers’ Regulatory Burden
CHA encourages members to submit comments, due Aug. 25

Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Chairman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) has announced a new initiative to reduce legislative and regulatory burdens on Medicare providers. The “Provider Statutory & Regulatory Relief Initiative” will consist of three stages: receiving feedback from stakeholders, hosting roundtables with stakeholders across the country and taking congressional action based on stakeholder feedback.

The committee requests feedback from doctors, nurses, clinicians and health care professionals on how Congress can both deliver statutory relief from current mandates and work with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, MD and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma to deliver regulatory relief through administrative action.

CHA will submit comments and encourages hospital members to do so as well. To submit comments by the Aug. 25 deadline, complete the attached form and send it to
