  • Under new practice guidelines HHS released on January 14, physicians are generally now exempt from the X-waiver requirement for prescribing buprenorphine to patients with opioid use disorder. ACEP hosted a webinar to discuss the guidelines on Jan. 20th. A recording of the webinar can be found here.
  • HHS released revised reporting requirements for individuals or groups that received over $10,000 from the Provider Relief Fund (PRF). The due date for submitting required information related to the use of PRF funds has been extended past Feb 21 (a new deadline will be announced in the coming weeks.) In the meantime, HHS has opened up a reporting portal and requests that all individuals or groups register. Registration takes around 20 minutes.
  • ACEP submitted comments on issues related to the design, reporting, and scoring of Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Value Pathways (MVPs) that were identified and discussed during a Town Hall that CMS hosted and ACEP participated in on January 7. ACEP is developing an emergency medicine-specific MVP that we intend to submit to CMS for consideration.
