    Question: CMS has recently issued a waiver for medical equipment inspections. How is the TJC recognizing this?

    Answer: TJC will be granting waivers in conjunction with the allowance that CMS recently published. However, the TJC is still seeking clarification, from CMS, as to when the deferrals would expire.
