CMS to Grant Exceptions to ASCs Affected by Irma

Due to the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will grant exceptions for Medicare quality reporting requirements to ASCs located in areas affected by the storm.

ASCs located in any of Florida’s 67 counties, one of 12 Puerto Rico municipios or one of four US Virgin Islands county-equivalents will receive exceptions without having to submit an extraordinary circumstances exception (ECE) request. ASCs in counties, municipios, county-equivalents and states outside of the designated areas also may request an exception to the reporting requirements.
