On April 17, APMA hosted a gathering of the Contractor Advisory Committee (CAC) Engagement Coalition of more than 20 organizations to address ongoing issues with the Local Coverage Process. Following multiple sessions with CMS, the coalition has opted to arrange a face-to-face meeting with CMS on May 17 to express its frustrations and concerns.

Repeatedly, the coalition has highlighted its collective concerns regarding the current implementation of local coverage policies, including concerns about the diminishing importance of CAC representatives' advisory roles, insufficient notice and comment procedures, procedural hurdles, and a lack of transparency. APMA anticipates that this forthcoming meeting will reflect an important step toward continuing to address our concerns.
