AHA to CMS Regarding COVID-19 Data Reporting Requirements For Hospitals and Health Systems

AHA urges the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to withdraw the condition of participation that hospitals report daily COVID-19 data. However, given the significant implications of this new requirement, if the agency is intent upon moving forward with this misguided policy, we request that CMS immediately release detailed interpretive guidance so hospitals can take the necessary steps to come into compliance. View details under key resources below.
