  • On October 20, the CMS Innovation Center (CMMI) released a white paper detailing the vision for the Center over the next 10 years.
  • The HHS Secretary has extended the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) for another 90 days. It was currently set to expire on October 18. Therefore, the PHE is now set to expire on January 16, 2022. This is the seventh time the HHS Secretary has extended the PHE. The extension of the PHE means that the waivers and flexibilities that the CMS and other federal agencies have instituted to help health care practitioners and facilities respond to the pandemic will remain in place.
  • On October 15, ACEP participated in a meeting with the CMS Administrator, other senior CMS officials, and key staff from the Departments of Labor and Treasury to discuss our concerns with the second interim final rule implementing the No Surprises Act. ACEP helped organize the meeting and was joined by other medical societies and hospital organizations. ACEP also held a Surprise Billing Member Town Hall on October 14 for members to learn more about this issue. Click here to watch the recording.
