In this week’s episode, Mary Beth Johnston, Carolyn Merritt and Leah Richardson discuss the ways in which the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak is easing certain financial and compliance burdens on health care providers seeking agility in responding to the crisis. In particular, the presenters address the Stark Law compliance waivers issued by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services related to the COVID-19 outbreak, and discuss the effect of a Self-Referral Disclosure Protocol submission in the context of CMS’ recently announced expansion of its Accelerated and Advanced Payment Program for various types of providers.
