Submit Your Comments to CMS by Monday, 9/14

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which is revising regulations governing skilled nursing and long term care facilities, is accepting comments on the proposed changes through September 14 at 5:00 p.m.  CMS needs to hear directly from you since you're the expert in long term care.

VHCA is asking every administrator, director of nursing, corporate leader, and others working in the long term care profession to weigh in with CMS.  Sending your comments is easy.  While the proposed rule is very broad, you should not feel like every issue in the rule must be addressed.  Focus on a few items that will have the greatest impact on you, your staff, or your facility.  

Resources to help you

VHCA and the American Health Care Association (AHCA) have put together resources to help you prepare and submit your comments.
