Vaccine mandates update
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate remains on track for compliance, and all CMS-certified providers should work towards policy development and vaccination of all employees to assure compliance with the Dec. 5 deadline for first doses. Acknowledging that this mandate has seen court cases filed, at this time it is not anticipated this will be derail the rule. No changes to the OSHA Rule have an effect on this rule.

  • CMS released slides from a stakeholder call, and you can also access the video of the call and CMS’ Frequently Asked Questions document.
    • Check out this LeadingAge resource for the 10 COVID-19 vaccine policies that must be addressed in the CMS Rule.
  • The mandate issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is completely separate and has been suspended. The compliance timeline will not be enforced or implemented at this time. Further action by the court will be necessary to reinstate the requirements and any future compliance timelines.
