COVID-19 Activities and Actions Update

As part of the ongoing White House Coronavirus Task Force efforts, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and other agencies have issued several resource documents, refocused activities related to state survey agencies and accrediting organizations, and taken other related actions. Key updates from this past week include:

This toolkit, released by CMS, outlines current actions of organizations and state governments to support nursing homes since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

CMS published options for state Medicaid programs to consider under Medicaid managed care contracts to help address the current impacts of the COVID-19 emergency.

The Trump Administration is currently seeking nominations for the Nursing Home Commission as part of the Administration’s plan to Open Up America Again.

CMS released additional guidance for states and nursing homes to ensure patients and providers are protected as states begin reopening.

CMS is documenting its COVID-19 activities on their Current Emergencies website.
