- Elimination of references to the Consolidated Waiver Program (CWP)
- Revision to Item #72 (for ICF only), which allows for an APN or PA to attest that the physician whose license is noted in Item #55 delegated Items 19 and 48-51 to the APN or PA
- Revisions to the form’s instructions
Please begin using this revised version of Form 8578. Entities with existing stock of hard copies of the previous version of Form 8578 have until June 1, 2012, to begin using the revised version.
Additionally, Form 8662 (Related Conditions Eligibility Screen Instrument) and its instructions have been updated to include respectful language.
