  • Arbitration: tips and tools for implementing CMS’s recent final rule on arbitration

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 08/29/2019

    AHCA will host a webinar on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final arbitration rule on Thursday, August 29 at 2 pm ET. As a reminder, last month CMS issued the final rule that reverses the Obama-era ban on the use of arbitration agreements. This rule makes it very clear that we have the ability to use pre-dispute agreements, while at the same time adding provisions intended to make sure that residents and/or their representatives understand the agreements into which they are entering. Additionally, the rule prevents a facility from making the signing of an agreement a precondition of admission.

    On July 16, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the proposed rule that is intended to ease some of the administrative and paperwork burdens of the Requirements of Participation (RoPs). Click here for a full detailed summary.

    The proposed rule provides a 60-day public comment period that allows AHCA and all of you an opportunity to submit comments to CMS in support of proposed changes that will reduce administrative paperwork burden on your centers and to provide targeted feedback on areas where CMS has asked for additional information and insight, or areas that you believe have the biggest impact on your ability to provide quality care to your residents. We will share additional details on how you can support these proposals via the public comment process.

    Speakers:

    Dr. David Gifford, AHCA SVP of Quality and Regulatory Affairs and Chief Medical Officer

    Holly Harmon, AHCA Vice President of Quality, Regulatory & Clinical Services

    Sara Rudow, AHCA Senior Director of Regulatory Services
