NACHC will offer regular Office Hours for health center, PCA, and HCCN staff who have questions or want to share information about implementing and complying with the CMS Staff Vaccination Requirement.
On November 4, 2021, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the CMS Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination Interim Final Rule requiring all CMS facilities to implement staff vaccination requirements. As a result of multiple legal challenges, CMS has extended the compliance deadlines under the Interim Final Rule. On December 28, 2021, CMS released new guidance on the implementation of their IFR and guidelines to assess and maintain compliance with the COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Join us Friday, January 21st as we discuss the Guidance for the Interim Final Rule – Medicare and Medicaid Programs; Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination, FQHC Supplemental Survey Guidance, and current legal challenges.
