The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services seeks comments through Nov. 4 on the challenges individuals face accessing health care services through CMS programs; impact of CMS policies and requirements on provider well-being and retention; strategies to address health inequities and social determinants of health; and recommendations to improve or make permanent waivers and flexibilities provided in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency to further reduce burden and address health disparities.

“CMS will use the comments received in response to this RFI to identify potential opportunities for improvement and increased efficiencies across CMS policies, programs, and practices,” the agency said.
