Regarding the proposed rule for the 2019 Medicare Part B fee schedule (CMS- 1693-P).  Comments must be submitted to the agency by midnight Monday, September 10th.  

THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION OF NURSE PRACTITIONER FACULTIES CALL TO ACTION: 

 Submit A Comment on NP Student Documentation Regulations- Deadline Midnight Monday, September 10th.

You may have heard about the recent change in federal policies on the documentation of evaluation and management services. Nurse practitioner (NP) preceptors and NP students were not included in this policy.  The reduction of burden was only for teaching physicians and medical students. The new policy threatens availability of clinical placement for NP students.We need your help!

NONPF members have an opportunity to help correct this policy by submitting comments on the proposed rule for the 2019 Medicare Part B fee schedule (CMS- 1693-P).  Comments must be submitted to the agency by midnight Monday, September 10th. Read more for instructions to submit comments and NONPF’s recommended comments.
