CMS Issues Latest Medicare Regulatory Update

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued its latest update on its regulatory activities in Medicare.  For those dentists who have significant dealings with Medicare, the update is always important to check out.  But Medicare drives a lot of health care policy initiatives in other sectors, so it is always worth keeping up on what CMS is doing with Medicare.  This issue highlights the latest updates on issuance of the new Medicare patient identification cards, an updated fact sheet on the 2018 electronic health record (EHR) incentive payment program for hospitals, and a new audio recording and transcript of a presentation on the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS).  To read the current CMS Medicare update, use the link below.
