AAEM Signs on to Joint Letter to CMS to Sunset Waivers When PHE Concludes

AAEM signs on to a joint letter urging Administrator of CMS, Seema Verma, to sunset the waivers involving scope of practice and licensure when the public health emergency (PHE) concludes.

 

The undersigned organizations represent the hundreds of thousands of physicians who provide care for our nation’s Medicare patients every day. We are writing to strongly support the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) decision to temporarily waive certain regulatory requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic. These temporary waivers, in extraordinary circumstances, have empowered physicians and non-physician health care professionals to focus on their patients and prevented a collapse of the health care system in the hardest hit areas of the country. However, we urge CMS to sunset the waivers involving scope of practice and licensure when the public health emergency (PHE) concludes.
