Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

In response to the spread of COVID-19, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has suspended non-emergency federal and state survey agency surveys. Consistent with that action, CMS is reprioritizing scheduled program audits for Medicare Advantage organizations, Part D sponsors, Medicare-Medicaid Plans, and PACE oganizations. Oversight will continue but will shift to prioritize the investigation and resolution of instances of noncompliance where the health and/or safety of beneficiaries is at risk and complaints allenging infection control concerns.
