VGM crafts comment template

Thursday, May 17, 2018

WATERLOO, Iowa – VGM has created a template for suppliers to use when drafting their comments on the interim final rule. Providers are encouraged to hit on a few key points, including that future policy decisions must include providers in all non-bid areas that serve patients in “non-rural” areas; that the adjusted fee schedule is unsustainable; that the oxygen “double-dip” has pushed reimbursement rates below the single payment amount; and that CMS’s complaint and access monitoring is not capturing patient complaints. Comments are due to CMS by 5 p.m. EST on July 9. The downloadable template can be found here.
