CMS Issues Final Rule Revising Medicare Conditions of Participation to Reduce Burden

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued a final rule revising the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and Conditions of Coverage for hospitals, home health providers, transplant centers, ambulatory surgical centers, and other providers and facilities. Among the revised CoPs are requirements for hospital emergency preparedness, as well as infection prevention and control and antibiotic stewardship programs.

The final rule, which is intended to remove regulations identified by CMS as unnecessary, obsolete, or excessively burdensome, finalizes provisions of the following three distinct proposed rules:

  • Regulatory Provisions to Promote Program Efficiency, Transparency, and Burden Reduction, published Sept. 20, 2018
  • Hospital and Critical Access Hospital (CAH) Changes to Promote Innovation, Flexibility, and Improvement in Patient Care, published June 16, 2016
  • Fire Safety Requirements for Certain Dialysis Facilities, published Nov. 4, 2016​

More information is available in CMS’ fact sheet.
