CMS Roundup (Mar. 10, 2023)

Date:

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is providing an at-a-glance summary of news from around the agency:

CMS Releases Guidance for the End of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency on May 11 — Information on What You Need to Know

February 27:  CMS is preparing the public for the transition forward from the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) and has outlined what to expect after this period ends. In a new fact sheet, CMS discusses COVID-19 testing, vaccines and treatments; telehealth services; continuing flexibilities for health care providers and inpatient hospital care at home. The Biden-Harris Administration and CMS will continue to provide guidance to the public to ensure a smooth and predictable transition as May 11 approaches.

CMS Updates Drug Spending Dashboard with 2021 Data

March 1: CMS released a blog highlighting the addition of 2021 data to the Drug Spending Dashboards, interactive online tools that allow consumers, researchers, policy-makers, and other stakeholders to understand changes in spending on prescription drugs in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. This update comes as CMS is implementing the Inflation Reduction Act, the new prescription drug law that will bring extensive changes to lower the cost of prescription drugs for millions of Americans. The blog outlines that, while CMS is leveraging data in its implementation of the new prescription drug law, the time period of data to be used for the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Program differs from that used in the Drug Spending Dashboards, and the exclusions and exemptions of drugs from the Medicare Drug Price Negotiation Program are not applied to the Drug Spending Dashboards.
