AHA, others urge Congress to provide additional relief from Medicare sequester cuts as part of year-end legislation

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today announced that it is extending the third quarter 2020 data submission deadlines for several of its quality reporting and value programs for hospitals, post-acute care and other providers.

CMS indicates the extension is intended “to help providers focus on patient care during the COVID-19 public health emergency.”

A list of affected programs and new deadlines is included in CMS’ announcement.
