CMS finalizes rules to cut regulations for hospitals and providers, saving more than $5 billion

On May 9, CMS issued two new rules aimed at reducing regulatory burdens for healthcare providers. The first rule revises the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAHs). CMS estimates that annual savings to hospitals and CAHs will be approximately $940 million per year. The second, the Medicare Regulatory Reform rule, will produce savings of $200 million in the first year by promoting efficiency. This rule eliminates duplicative, overlapping, and outdated regulatory requirements for health care providers.
