New CMS Waivers and Rules

CMS yesterday announced a number of new regulatory waivers and rule changes to provide flexibility during the COVID-19 pandemic. The actions include changes making it easier for beneficiaries to obtain COVID-19 testing, further expanding billable Medicare telehealth services and increasing payments for audio-only telephone visits, and making modifications to the Medicare Shared Savings Program, including changes to account for the disparate impact of COVID-19 costs on participating ACOs.
