Members Can Help Finalize Therapeutic Diet Order Rule

The Academy needs your help to ensure the proposed rule on therapeutic diet orders is finalized.

Last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services issued a proposed rule that, if finalized in the summer, would permit registered dietitians working in and privileged by hospitals to order patient diets independently without requiring the supervision or approval of a physician or other practitioner.

The Academy plans to submit comments on behalf of our members, but we need your help. We are asking members to work with physicians and other non-RD practitioners, hospital executives and health systems administrators to have them sign on to a letter of support to append to the Academy's formal comments. In addition, members are encouraged to work through their DPGs and affiliates with any thoughts or suggestions for additional elements to include in the comments for the proposed rule.

Additional information and frequently asked questions about the proposed rule.
