FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn issued the following statement after CMS proposed cancelling the mandatory Episode Payment Model (EPM) and reducing the number of hospitals required to participate in the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) Payment Model: “FAH very much welcomes Secretary Price’s thoughtful efforts to reduce the regulatory burden on providers while at the same time advancing innovations in patient care delivery through voluntary demonstration programs under CMMI. Today’s proposed rule is an important step in the right direction, and we look forward to providing CMS with our comments.”
