CMS posts rules to cut regulations for hospitals and providers

On May 16, two new rules were published in the Federal Register aimed at reducing regulatory burdens for healthcare providers.  These rules previously appeared as display copies and were the basis of the Medicare Mentor Blog last week (put in link to the blog). 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 This rule eliminates duplicative, overlapping, and outdated regulatory requirements for health care providers.
