CMS releases guidelines for reopening facilities to provide non-emergent, non-COVID care

This week, CMS announced phase 1 criteria to guide health systems and facilities as they consider resuming in-person care of non-COVID-19 patients in regions with a low incidence of COVID-19 disease. The agency explains that careful planning is required to resume in-person care of patients requiring non-COVID-19 care, and all aspects of care must be considered, including:

MGMA will update members as CMS releases additional recommendations.
