calendar year (CY) 2020 Final Rule notification has been posted on CMS'
website. The notification provides a preview of what will be posted in the
Federal Register on November 12, 2019. The notice is available here.
As noted in the Proposed Rule (published in July 2019), CMS proposed to
continue voluntary participation in the Outpatient and Ambulatory Surgery
Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (OAS CAHPS) Survey
Based Measures OP-37a-e/ASC-15a-e, until further action in future
rulemaking. Therefore, OAS CAHPS will continue with voluntary reporting
The next update (CY 2021 Rule) will be proposed in July and finalized in
November 2020. The CY 2021 Rule will reflect any planned changes that would
impact the 2021 data collection period (CY 2023 payment determination).
