Good morning.  On  Monday, March 30, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published a set of Blanket Waivers in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic (  These waivers ease scores of Medicare requirements to allow providers and practitioners to focus their energy and efforts on providing critical services during this unprecedented time.


I want to make sure that you are aware of these waivers and to offer you an opportunity to meet with me and members of our CMS team by conference call or with a personal call to discuss.  If that interests you, please send an email to Patrick Hamilton and let him know your preference.  We’ll plan accordingly and keep you posted.


Thank you for all your work in these unprecedented times  Take care.
