If you'd like to weigh in on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA), now is your chance. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the comment period for the Request for Information (RFI) for MACRA.
The comment period, which was originally 30 days and scheduled to close on Nov. 2, 2015, will now close on Nov. 17, 2015. TMA and the American Medical Association urged CMS to extend the comment period to allow physicians the opportunity to offer more thoughtful and meaningful comments.
CMS' announcement includes the sections and questions CMS has prioritized. Read the RFI instructions for responding and the RFI extension document from the Federal Register.
Physicians with comments may email Donna Kinney, director of TMA's Research and Data Analysis Department, to ensure their concerns are addressed in TMA's or AMA’s comments.
