CMS Blanket Waivers

CMS Blanket Waivers

Last night, CMS put out a package of significant regulatory changes to help the U.S. health care system address the COVID-19 patient surge. The release reflects a huge advocacy win for LeadingAge and VNAA/ElevatingHOME members. LeadingAge pushed for nursing home, hospice, and home health waivers, which were granted. Below you will find additional information for each blanket waiver as well as some additional resources.

CMS also announced last night that it is suspending routine audit activity for PACE organizations.
