The Increasing Access to Quality Cardiac Rehabilitation Care Act of 2021 was recently introduced in the House by Reps. Blunt Rochester (D-DE) and Adrian Smith (R-NE). This bipartisan legislation would expand patient access to critical cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation services (CR/PR) during a crucial time when treatments for medical conditions have been delayed or avoided during the COVID-19 pandemic. MedAxiom and the ACC have long supported passage of this legislation, which would accelerate and expand the ability of physician assistants (PAs), nurse practitioners (NPs) and clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) to supervise CR programs under Medicare. The bill expedites the effective date of these changes to Jan. 1, 2022, and allows these practitioners to administer programs in their offices, prepare and sign treatment plans, and prescribe exercise.
