Provider enrollment moratoria expires
(HH)


Home health agencies with operations outside of Iowa in the states Florida, Illinois, Michigan or Texas had been working under a moratoria on Medicare provider enrollment. That moratoria will soon expire, according to a recent announcement by CMS, and there are no current plans to reinstate it. That means as of January 30, 2019, there will be no active moratoria in any state for Medicare provider enrollment.

The moratoria were originally implemented in those four states as temporary tool to combat fraud, waste and abuse in Medicare, Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). CMS has since implemented additional and new safeguard measures in place of the moratoria.
