AAPA is in need of your example(s) of how current Medicare restrictions impede patient care/restrict access to care. Examples of restrictions include:
  • Ordering and certifying terminal illness for hospice purposes 
  • Ordering home health care 
  • Performing initial and consecutive visits for skilled nurse facilities
  • Physician co-signature requirements 
  • Ordering medical nutritional therapy, or
  • Ordering and certifying needs for diabetic shoes

 



Contact Andrew Iwanek at aiwanik@aapa.org.

Include the location (name of town) and the impact (delayed treatment; prolonged hospital stay; etc.)

Do not include specifics of your name, physician name or patient name in the narrative.

Please submit examples by June 10th.
