Nov 2, 2018 - The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services is extending the deadline for publication of the final rule entitled "Medicare and Medicaid Program: Revisions to Requirements for Discharge Planning for Hospitals, Critical Access Hospitals, and Home Health Agencies." The extension period is necessary because it has been more than 3 years since the publication date of the initial proposed rule and it will allow the agency more time to review the large number public comments that have been received. The extension is effective on November 2, 2018.
