Officials proposed postponing by a year certain new requirements for participation in the Medicare and Medicaid insurance programs. 

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed delaying until November 28, 2020, requirements pertaining to compliance and ethics, as well as Quality Assurance Performance Improvement plan (QAPI) stipulations.

Other phase three requirements such as infection control and prevention and residents rights would remain on track for implementation in November of this year.
