Executive SummaryTown hall meeting originally planned for Aug. 31 to discuss the agency's May 16 "notice of intent" on coverage criteria is rescheduled for Sept. 13. HCFA plans to issue a Federal Register notice the week of Aug. 28 rescinding the earlier date. Issues to be addressed at the town hall meeting include increased evidence burden in coverage reviews and withdrawal of coverage for older technologies. The agency also is expected to announce that it will handle cost issues through its payment division, rather than as part of coverage decisions (1"The Gray Sheet" Aug. 21, 2000, p. 6)
