The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is seeking additional input and recommendations regarding elimination of specific Medicare regulations that require more stringent supervision than existing state scope of practice laws, or that limit health professionals from practicing at the top of their license. Read NNPENs comment letter.

December 4, 2019: NP Practice Owners - We Need YOU!
NNPEN is collaborating with healthcare researchers at Boston College School of Nursing and Brandeis University to discover the incidence of value-based payment arrangements (VBP) offered by payers in your market. From our initial solicitation of practice owners, we have a 5% response rate. We can do better!! If you are a nurse practitioner (NP) private practice owner willing to participate in a 10-question VBP survey, we need you! Even if you feel you have no experience with value-based payment to report, your response will help us establish a VBP baseline. TOGETHER WE SKATE TO WHERE THE PUCK IS GOING TO BE! Complete the Survey.
