On August 3, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services issued the advance copy of its proposed 2021 Physician Fee Schedule rule. While congressional action is needed to allow CMS to make permanent many of the temporary flexibilities available under the current public health emergency that have improved access to MNT and DSMT services for Medicare beneficiaries, the Academy will submit comments to CMS addressing their limited proposals that could impact RDNs who are Medicare providers. Academy comments will also address other important provisions of the proposed rules relevant to members. Members who are interested in helping inform the Academy‚Äôs comments should contact Marsha Schofield by August 21.
