Regulation | September 18, 2018 | by Eram S. Abbasi

CMS's new proposed rules will reduce the amount of time and resources providers spend on CMS-mandated compliance activities and focus on quality of care.

On September 17, 2018, CMS released “proposed” new rules to remove unnecessary Medicare compliance requirements for healthcare facilities. The providers prominently impacted from this new rule are Hospice and Home Health care. The new proposed rules are expected to save providers an estimated $1.12 billion annually. The new changes will reduce the amount of time and resources providers spend on CMS-mandated compliance activities and focus on quality of care. LeadingAge’s staff are examining the relevant rules to comprehend the effect of it on our members. We will have details of the proposed rule available for our members by next week.
