CMS grants exceptions to ASCs in areas affected by natural disasters

By: Judy Mathias

Editor’s Note

Because of the impact of several recent natural disasters, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is granting exceptions for Medicare quality reporting requirements to ASCs in affected areas, the February 12 ASCA News reports.

Exceptions include:

  • ASCs in two California counties affected by wildfires
  • ASCs located in Mississippi counties affected by Hurricane Nate.

 These areas will receive exceptions without having to submit an extraordinary circumstances exception request.
