Federal Government Announces Vaccination Reporting Requirements for Nursing Homes

May 11, 2021

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced its interim final rule which requires long term care facilities to publicly report its vaccination rates. AHCA/NCAL, which has supported publicly reporting vaccination rates, said they appreciated CMS taking this step as it helps facilitate in-person visits, track vaccine effectiveness and helps ensure the industry meets its goal to vaccinate 75 percent of staff by the end of June.
