New Interpretive Guidelines Implementation Templates Released

Thursday, May 19, 2011


On January 14, 2011, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued revised Interpretive Guidelines (IGs) pertaining to the hospital Conditions of Participation. These guidelines revise major sections of the December 2009 CMS Hospital Interpretative Guidelines and are effective immediately. To help its members implement the many changes in these IGs, ASA has prepared a set of policy templates and forms. Language that is quoted from the IGs is in blue color in these documents, as well as the source reference e.g. (§482.52).

The policy templates, forms and resources are not intended to be, nor should they be interpreted as, legal advice.  All anesthesia departments and hospitals should review these templates, forms and resources with appropriate legal counsel and make their own determinations as to relevance to their particular hospital setting and compliance with State and federal laws and regulations.

Click here to see the new interpretative guidelines templates and forms.
