CMS Temporarily Suspends Physician Supervision Requirements For CRNAs

Dear Patty,

Breaking news! The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has temporarily suspended physician supervision requirements for CRNAs!

Only moments ago, CMS announced an unprecedented array of temporary regulatory waivers and new rules to equip the American healthcare system with maximum flexibility to respond to the pandemic and enabling YOU to practice at full scope. View the AANA news release.

As you know, the AANA has been working tirelessly on your behalf to remove these burdensome restrictions. Earlier this month, AANA CEO Dr. Randall Moore, DNP, CRNA, MBA, met with President Trump, Vice President Pence, CMS Administrator Verma, and other key senior administration officials. During that conversation, Dr. Moore strongly advocated for this very action.

This suspension of burdensome and unnecessary physician supervision requirements means that CRNAs can contribute their skills and expertise when and where they are needed the most.

On behalf of the AANA Board of Directors and staff, thank you for everything you do. The AANA will continue to be your voice during this crisis, advocating for you, your patients, and the communities you serve.

Kate Jansky, MHS, CRNA, APRN, USA LTC (ret)
