CMS withdraws 3 proposed health rules

CMS has withdrawn three proposed healthcare rules developed under the administration of former President Donald Trump.

The withdrawn rules include a revision to Medicare Part A enrollment requirements, altered dialysis coverage requirements for third party-payment programs and increased oversight of accrediting organizations. 

The withdrawn rules come after President Joe Biden's Chief of Staff Ronald Klain ordered a freeze on new or pending rules issued by the Trump administration. The freeze prevents the departments and agencies from implementing the rules until the Biden administration has had a chance to review them. 

The White House Office of Management and Budget had been reviewing the rules.
