Medicare to repeal medical device rule pushed by Trump administration

From Yahoo News | Axios by Bob Herman

After receiving public feedback, CMS determined the rule was "not in the best interest of Medicare beneficiaries because the rule may provide coverage without adequate evidence that the breakthrough device would be a reasonable and necessary treatment."
