Upcoming Call to Focus on IMPACT Act in 2017
On February 23, 2017, from 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a call, “Looking Ahead: The IMPACT Act in 2017,” focusing on the Improving Medicare Post-Acute Care Transformation (IMPACT Act) of 2014.

Agenda topics during this call will include the requirements, goals, progress to date, and key milestones for 2017. CMS will also convene a question and answer session following the presentation. To participate in the call, registration is required.
