CCVS Attestation Change
The CCVS Advisory Committee has recommended a change to the policies and procedures regarding CCVS Attestations.  The Committee will be requesting that the physician include the primary practice information at the time the CCVS attestation is completed.  If the physician does not have a primary practice, he/she may simply state “none”.  If the physician does not list anything, the attestation will be incomplete.

This change is being instituted in order to assist CCVS in gathering the primary practice information and to improve the turnaround time for CCVS orders.

This change does not go into effect until 11/06/2020 and the new form cannot be used prior to this date!
