CMS COVID-19 Stakeholder Call Recording & Transcripts

CMS COVID-19 Stakeholder Call Recording & Transcripts

Announcement from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:

“The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is taking action to protect the health and safety of our nation’s patients and providers in the wake of the 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In an effort to be transparent and share this information broadly, CMS will be posting several of our stakeholder calls.

“CMS held a National Stakeholder Call on March 13, 2020, to update the healthcare community on the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation which was declared a national emergency by President Trump on March 13. This bold move empowered CMS to waive certain federal requirements in Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP to rapidly expand the Administration’s aggressive efforts against COVID-19 led by the White House Coronavirus Taskforce.

“The transcript and audio recording from that call are now available to download. CMS will hold future calls and post those transcripts and audio recordings as they become available.
