The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) mandate, issued as part of the Biden Administration’s vaccination plan, hit a roadblock yesterday when two federal judges halted its enforcement nationwide.

CMS Mandate Refresher

The CMS mandate required Medicare and Medicaid healthcare providers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by mid-January next year. Covered healthcare organizations were to require that all employees receive their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by at least December 5th, 2021 and a second dose by January 4th, 2022. Noncompliance could result in termination of Medicare/Medicaid Provider Agreements. CMS was set to begin enforcing the mandate December 6th, 2021.
