EXPIRED Revised Guidance for Staff Vaccination Requirements

on the radar alert

In a memorandum dated July 25, 2023, noted as QSO-23-02-ALL EXPIRED, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) provided information on a final rule regarding the expiration of COVID-19 staff vaccination requirements for all provider types, effective August 5, 2023. In addition:

  • Effective June 5, 2023, surveyors will no longer assess compliance with the previous vaccination requirements for Medicare and Medicaid providers.
  • CMS will not enforce the staff vaccination provisions between June 5, 2023, and August 4, 2023.
  • CMS reported that most providers and suppliers demonstrated substantial compliance with the vaccination requirements when surveyed by their State.

You can find current and past CMS memorandums at the CMS.gov website - Policy and Memos to States and CMS Locations.
