Procedure for submission of request for consideration of mitigation factors

  • A transplant program may request that CMS consider mitigating factors in the initial approval and re-approval of a transplant program that does not meet §482.80 or §482.82 (see Conditions of Participation for Transplant Centers). 488.61 describes three general areas that will be reviewed in determining whether or not a program can be approved based on mitigating factors.
