What would have seemed impossible just a short time ago actually came true for us earlier this month. On July 10th we reluctantly submitted yet another MSA to CMS for approval via the web-based portal. We then subsequently scheduled a routine follow up for July of 2022! Much to our surprise, on August 6th, just 28 days later, we received a notification from CMS that our submitted MSA had been approved.
What had been promised to the MSA industry had actually been delivered, and we were able to relay the good news to our customer. I have since heard similar stories from our friends in the industry with approval times coming back in as little as 7 days. We’re not sure how long this good fortune will last, but here’s hoping for the best!
