CMS Rescinds Medicare Pay Decision for Surgery Center
On Tuesday, CMS official Rufus Arther said the agency is canceling a termination notice that would have ended reimbursement payments for Medicare and Medi-Cal, the state's Medicaid program, at St. Joseph's Surgery Center. The payment cessation was slated to take effect on Dec. 15. According to CMS, St. Joseph's now has the opportunity to address issues stemming from a September inspection of the facility.
