CMS to Host Call on Requirements of Participation Regulation Changes

On August 11 from 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a call for providers and stakeholders during which the agency will briefly walk through the many changes in the proposed rule for Medicare requirements of participation.  The agenda for the call is:

  • Highlights of the proposed rule.
  • Overarching themes of the proposed rule.
  • Methods for reviewing and commenting on the proposed rule.

A question and answer session will follow the presentation. Registration is required.  Additional information is available on the CMS website.

The Virginia Health Care Association encourages you to submit comments to CMS on how the proposed rule will affect your facility.  VHCA will provide you with additional guidance on how to do so in the coming weeks.  Read the 2015 Summer edition of the VHCA Legal Quarterly for an overview of the proposed rule.
