CMS: Beyond the Policy

CMS now produces a new podcast, “CMS: Beyond the Policy,”. It will highlight updates and changes to policies and programs in an easily accessible and conversational format. The podcast was created as a new method to explain the agency’s policies and programs. The podcast demonstrates CMS commitment to transparency and outreach by presenting CMS-related policies, updates, and innovations on as many platforms as possible. It is also a direct response to stakeholder suggestions that a podcast would be a modern, user-friendly way to stay informed about the Agency.
