Health Leaders Media

The American Medical Association has sent the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services a list of “most burdensome” federal regulations that the physicians’ organization says will interfere with patient care, drive up administrative costs, and add more paperwork.

In a letter to CMS Administrator Donald Berwick, MD, AMA President Cecil B. Wilson, MD, said the list — and accompanying suggested solutions — were compiled after an extensive survey of more than 2,000 physicians from an array of specialties, and from state and medical specialty societies.
