Vaccine Mandate Update & Guidance
After the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the ban against the vaccine mandate for health care workers in CMS funded facilities, CMS issued state survey guidance for the providers in the 24 states that were affected by the decision, including Ohio.
Again, the mandate does not apply to physician offices, but physicians and other health care providers who work in facilities subject to the mandate will need to comply with a first dose of vaccine by February 14 and the second dose by March 15—unless one of the limited exceptions applies.
The OSMA will continue to review and monitor the implementation of the rules. If you have questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
