CMS implements screening calls 

WASHINGTON – CMS is having a subcontractor of the National Supplier Clearinghouse call supplier locations to make sure they’re open and available for inspection, according to AAHomecare. 

Early in the COVID-19 public health emergency, CMS waived the requirement that suppliers be open at a physical location a minimum of 30 hours per week (supplier standard No. 7). The waiver was lifted in July and CMS announced it would move forward with physical inspections. The agency assured that inspectors would follow state and local guidelines. 

The subcontractor, Overland Solutions, has been instructed to call suppliers and ask them questions about their current company address and if they're operating from their physical location or from home, according to a bulletin from AAHomecare.
