CMS threatens to withhold payments from hospitals not reporting COVID-19, flu data

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on October 6 released guidance on how it will implement an interim final rule that requires hospitals and critical access hospitals to report data on COVID-19 and flu patients.

CMS says failure to report specified data may lead to termination of a provider’s participation in the Medicare and Medicaid programs.
