NAMSS Comments on Proposed CMS Rule

Shortly after CMS issued its proposed rule to "promote program efficiency, transparency, and burden reduction" in early February, NAMSS compiled a volunteer task force to review the proposal and respond to CMS. 

The Task Force specifically responded to five components of the proposal:  dietitian privileges, physician representation on the governing body, medical staff membership criteria, medical staff requirements for individual hospitals, and outpatient service orders from practitioners who are not members of the medical staff. 

Our comments to CMS are posted on the NAMSS website.  We will keep you updated on CMS's final rule, and as always, are happy to answer any questions that you may have.
