Medicare and Medicaid Flexibilities During Public Health Emergencies

This week, our In Focus comes from HMA Vice President Kathleen Nolan and Managing Principal Jon Blum. On March 13, 2020, President Trump declared a national emergency due to the rapid spread of COVID-19 virus. This declaration provides Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) new abilities to waive Medicare and Medicaid regulatory requirements to help health care providers, health plans and other stakeholders respond to immediate needs of their patients and communities.

Every Wednesday, HMA publishes the Weekly Roundup, an information-packed resource that will keep you updated on industry news, trends in state health policy throughout the nation, and more.
