Andy Slavitt, CMS team applauded for MACRA final rule rollout

Friday was a good day for CMS Acting Administrator Andy Slavitt on Twitter. His team transformed the way CMS communicates policy updates — and their work did not go unnoticed.

CMS is known for dropping dense policies late on a Friday afternoon, but with the final rule for the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, the agency released the rule early Friday, with a host of press releases, fact sheets and additional resources. The CMS team even created a modern, easy-to-understand website for physicians, explaining the rule in-depth.

The approach was met with approval. Mr. Slavitt has been following along with the praise on his Twitter feed today.
