The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will be hosting a Section 111 Non-Group Health Plan (NGHP) webinar on August 13, 2020 at 1:00 PM EST, and can be accessed here. As with most CMS webinars and presentations, the format will be opening remarks by CMS followed by a presentation that will include NGHP reporting best practices and reminders. For questions regarding Section 111 reporting, CMS has created a Section 111 Resource Mailbox: [email protected].

It remains to be seen whether this webinar will address the proposed rule regarding Civil Money Penalties, for which the public comment period closed in April, as we discussed here. As a reminder, the proposed rule is generally very broad in nature, with various parts of the rule subject to various interpretations.  Since the comment period has closed, the next step in this process is the final rule stage, and it is quite possible this webinar will discuss the proposed rule.

We will be sure to provide a complete summary after the webinar and feature it here on our blog.
