Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Fact Sheet for State and Local Governments CMS Programs & Payment for Care in Hospital Alternate Care Sites [REVISED December 13, 2021] [open pdf - 334KB]
From the Purpose: "In response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] public health emergency (PHE), state and local governments, hospitals, and others are developing alternate care sites to expand capacity and provide needed care to patients. The term alternate care site (ACS) is a broad term for any building or structure that is temporarily converted or newly erected for healthcare use. The Federal Healthcare Resiliency Task Force issued a toolkit [hyperlink] to help state and local governments develop an ACS. This document provides state and local governments developing alternate care sites with information on how to seek payments through CMS [Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services] programs - Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) - for acute inpatient and outpatient care furnished at the site."
