States are reopening sooner than the federal PHE is ending. If your healthcare organization has taken advantage of Federal 1135 blanket waivers during the National Public Health Emergency (PHE), be sure to review those waivers as you prepare for a survey (accreditation) to check if any were inconsistent with requirements under your state emergency or pandemic plan.
The 1135 blanket waivers apply to requirements for Federal programs. However, some of the waivers could be superseded by requirements set by state or local authorities (having jurisdiction) – if that is stated in a particular waiver and is included in your state’s emergency or pandemic plan.
Terry discusses the above topics plus outsourcing of your RCM. Is it a good time to do it? And if so how?
