In this CMS article you'll learn about:
- The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is proposing actions to advance health equity and improve access to care in rural communities. The agency is also proposing to adjust payments to account for the additional costs of purchasing domestically made NIOSH-approved surgical N95 respirators.
- CMS is proposing to establish payment rates for services furnished at Remote Behavioral Health (REH) facilities. REHs would receive the standard OPPS payment rate plus 5% for each REH service provided. Payments would improve access to emergency services, observation care, and additional outpatient services.
