Webinar: CMS Rule for Health Care Worker Vaccination

Hospital Management
Noon - 1 p.m.


The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on Nov. 4 published its much-anticipated rule mandating COVID-19 vaccines for workers at health care facilities participating in Medicare or Medicaid. The new conditions of participation require workers at these health care facilities (including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, dialysis facilities, home health agencies and long-term care facilities) to have received the necessary shots to be fully vaccinated by Jan. 4, 2022.

This webinar will provide an overview of the new regulatory requirements, implications for non-compliance, and practical considerations for implementation. It will also discuss legal challenges that may be filed against the requirements. 

Please Note this webinar will focus on the CMS rule and will not include a detailed overview of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration emergency temporary standard, which requires employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is vaccinated or tests for COVID-19 at least weekly. The OSHA standard does not apply to organizations that are covered by the CMS rule.
