Highlights of the proposal include: request for ideas for regulatory relief; expansion of the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) to all Medicare patients at risk of type 2 diabetes; delayed implementation of appropriate use criteria for advanced imaging services; and extension of the California Geographic Practice Cost Index fix.
