Arbitration: tips and tools for implementing CMS’s recent final rule on arbitrationContains 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.
