CMS Workgroup Members Named

ADA's Legislative and Public Policy Committee has established a workgroup to provide a mechanism for members' input and a forum for an ongoing exchange of ideas with the purpose of helping develop and refine ADA's regulatory strategy for engaging the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

The CMS Workgroup consists of ADA members and staff from dietetic practice groups and focus areas; it is intended as a collaborative effort among the Legislative and Public Policy, Quality Management, and Coding & Coverage committees.

Workgroup members will identify and bring forward current and future issues of concern to members, solicit member opinion and expertise, recommend and critique strategies for CMS resolution of identified issues and develop and monitor mechanisms for improving communication of CMS activities to ADA's membership.

The CMS Workgroup convenes on May 13. Its members and their areas of specialty are:

  • Katherine A. Cairns, MPH, MBA, RD (Medicaid)
