CMS Seeks Nominations for Air Ambulance Committee

The No Surprises Act required the Secretary of HHS and the Secretary of Transportation to form an advisory committee for the purpose of reviewing options to establish standards for quality, patient safety, and clinical capability in air ambulances. CMS is seeking nominations now through June 28 from each of the following groups: state insurance regulators; health care providers; health insurers offering coverage plans for groups and individuals; patient advocacy groups; and accrediting bodies with experience in quality measures. Nominations for health care providers should include physicians and other clinicians, as well as health care operations professionals experienced with air ambulance services and/or experience in addressing the challenges associated with transport in rural areas.
