What Providers Need to Know About Coronavirus

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued another round of temporary regulatory waivers and rule changes for providers during the COVID-19 national public health emergency. The action gives organizations more interim flexibilities to meet critical healthcare demands.

 

New information focuses on expanding telehealth options for home health, hospice, and DMEPOS providers and broadens telehealth and patient assessment options for rehabilitation skilled professionals, such as physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists.

Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) continually updates industry information to give you the most current resources that best meet your needs.

During the emergency, CMS supports the use of temporary accreditation to ensure local healthcare systems can provide services during a potential surge of COVID-19 patients. ACHC is offering temporary accreditation with virtual off-site reviews for DMEPOS providers who are renewing and renal dialysis facilities seeking initial Medicare certification or requesting service additions. A second on-site survey for full accreditation will be conducted after the emergency is over.
