WASHINGTON, D.C., June 27, 2013—CMS has announced a delay on the new face-to-face rule effective July 1. A three-month extension moves the deadline to October 1. AAHomecare will provide a more detailed analysis of the announcement shortly. AAHomecare has worked diligently with CMS for many months to have a delay granted. The delay will allow suppliers and the healthcare community to better prepare for the requirements under the rule. Over the course of the next 90 days, AAHomecare will be working with CMS to clarify operational scenarios that arise every day in the life of a DME supplier. The association's goal is to provide tools and FAQ documents that can help members transition smoothly and with confidence. Go online to www.aahomecare.org.
