According to Bill Finerfrock, Executive Director of the National Association of Rural Health Clinics:
"On Friday, February 1, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a revised RHC/FQHC Policy Manual. The purpose of these revisions is to clear up areas where there was confusion over CMS policy or where CMS had been silent on a policy that now required a clear statement.
In most instances, these clarifications are vast improvements in the document and should help to avoid commonly recurring questions. In other instances, we believe CMS has incorrectly stated the policy and we will be working with them to make further refinements/corrections.
NARHC would like to generally congratulate CMS on the completion of this revised manual and we look forward to working with them to make some additional changes to properly reflect both the RHC statute and regulations.
Should you see areas in this document that you think are incorrect, please contact me and identify those areas so we can work with you to get them addressed. You are not required to work with us and everyone should certainly feel free to contact CMS directly and raise your questions/concerns with them...
