Summary: On January 17, 2020, PAEA submitted a response to a Request for Feedback from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on regulatory barriers impeding the ability of advanced practice providers to practice to the top of their license. In the letter, PAEA reiterated the requests of AAPA focusing on direct payment under Medicare and ordering and certifying the need for home health care, diabetic shoes, and hospice care, among other priorities. PAEA also urged the agency to address long-standing physical presence requirements for preceptors of PA students.
