CMS Rules and Regulations
Keeping up with the rules and regulations being promulgated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has always been a daunting task for hospitals. Now that task is even more difficult. In addition to annual rules associated with reimbursement, federal healthcare reform has created several new mandates and changes to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) requirements. More than ever before, it’s critical for hospitals’ clinical, operational, compliance, and finance staff members to stay on top of all the changing CMS regulations. To assist hospital staff in better understanding currently proposed rules and recently finalized rules, SCHA has created this special section where you can access proposed rules, final rules, and comments submitted by SCHA to CMS on behalf of member hospitals.
