AHA Comments on CMS’s Request for Information on Reducing Administrative Burden

AHA comments on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ request for information on reducing administrative burden.

In 2017, the AHA released an analysis showing that providers spend nearly $39 billion a year solely on administrative activities related to regulatory compliance. In addition to the sheer volume, the scope of changes required by new regulations is beginning to outstrip the field’s ability to absorb them.
