OCAN Comments on 2023 Medicare Fee Schedule

September 06, 2022

Dear Administrator Brooks-LaSure:

"On behalf of the Obesity Care Advocacy Network (OCAN), we appreciate the opportunity to provide comments in response to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) proposed rule for calendar year (CY) 2023 (CMS-1770-P).

Founded in 2015, OCAN is a diverse group of organizations focused on changing how we perceive and approach obesity in the U.S. OCAN works to increase access to evidence-based obesity treatments by uniting key stakeholders and the broader obesity community around significant education, policy and legislative efforts. We aim to fundamentally change how the U.S. healthcare system treats obesity, and to shift the cultural mindset on obesity so that policymakers and the public address obesity as a serious chronic disease. We welcome the opportunity to work with CMS to address the needs of Medicare beneficiaries living with obesity and ask that you consider our comments on the proposed rule."
