CMS to End Specific Blanket Waivers

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced guidance to restore certain minimum standards for compliance. This is being done by phasing out some temporary emergency declaration waivers that have been in effect throughout the COVID-19 PHE.

On April 7, 2022, CMS issued this press release.

The memorandum details the specific waivers that will end 30 days and 60 days from issuance.
