Biden Administration Mandates Vaccinations for Health Care Workers
On Sept. 9, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it will require COVID-19 vaccinations for workers in most health care settings that receive Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement, including hospitals and ambulatory surgical settings. These requirements will apply to approximately 50,000 providers and cover most health care workers across the country. The administration plans to issue an interim final rule implementing this policy in early October.
