ANA applauds the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for including the advance care planning codes in the recently released 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule. Through this action, CMS recognizes that advanced care planning services, commonly referred to as “end-of-life” consultations, are essential to delivering high-quality care in a manner that fully aligns with the goals and desires of the patient. This proposal, if finalized, will help ensure that patient care preferences are understood by health care providers, and that patients receive their preferred care when facing complex, serious health care issues.
