In December, 2020, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA, 2021). Section 407 of CAA, 2021, amended Part A of Title XVIII of the Social Security Act (the Act) at section 1822 establishing hospice program survey and enforcement requirements. This amendment, in part, now requires the Secretary to provide training for state and federal surveyors, and any surveyor employed by an AO, including a training and testing program approved by the Secretary, no later than October 1, 2021. Further, no surveyor can conduct hospice program surveys until they complete training and testing. The data collected by CMS through the QSEP training website will be used by CMS to evaluate compliance with the regulatory requirements governing AOs with CMS-approved hospice programs. As part of this collection, CMS will be able to determine which AOs have completed the training, as required and when.
