On August 17, 2000, we published a notice in the Federal Register (65 FR 50171) that announced the town hall meeting for interested parties to discuss criteria we would use to make certain national coverage decisions under the Medicare program. (The August notice provides specific information on the purpose of this meeting. This information remains the same and has not been changed). We wish to allow an additional opportunity to obtain input from the public on the criteria we would use to make Medicare national coverage decisions. Our intent was to hold a town hall meeting promptly to facilitate our efforts to issue a proposed rule. We received, however, comments and requests to delay the town hall meeting to give the public more time to prepare for the meeting. We have rescheduled the open town hall meeting from August 31, 2000 to September 13, 2000.Start Signature
