A note from NAHC’s Bill Dombi:
CMS just issued a proposed rule that will change the new CoP rule effective date to January 13, 2018. NAHC had spearheaded an effort to postpone the rule because of the extensive changes that are required and the absence of needed interpretive guidance to properly comply.
While the issuance is a proposed rule, it is highly expected that the final issuance will be consistent with the proposal.
The issuance is available here.
