Template COVID Vaccine Policy/ProcedureAs we are aware, the Maine Final Rule for Chapter 264: Immunization Requirements for HCWs went into effect on October 1, 2021. In addtion, the CMS Omnibus COVID-19 Health Care Staff Vaccination Interim Final Rule (IFR) was released with a deadline of January 4th, 2022 for compliance.
To help providers comply with this requirement, AHCA has developed a template policy and procedures on the COVID-19 vaccination mandate. AHCA will also host member-only Office Hours on Friday, December 3 at 2 PM ET with AHCA/NCAL Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Gifford and Vice President of Quality and Programs Courtney Bishnoi to discuss the latest available information about the IRF and answer questions. Registration is required and limited.
Additionally, a recording of the AHCA member-only webinar on implementing religious and medical exemptions is now available. CMS has recently updated its Frequently Asked Questions on the IRF, which AHCA recommends providers review.
