The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has been hosting regular stakeholder calls for a variety of health care providers, including clinicians, hospitals, and other facilities in order to keep them updated on their COVID-19 efforts. Because so many are busy with COVID-19, these calls have been recorded. Members can access both the recordings of these calls as well as the transcripts. Both are available on the CMS Outreach and Education website.

The National Council for Behavioral Health (National Council) has distributed an extensive set of questions and answers on the recently passed Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). This information can assist members with answering their questions and the benefits contained within the legislation. Questions, please contact Jack Phillips.
