On July 16, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the proposed rule that aims to ease some of the administrative and paperwork burdens of the Requirements of Participation (RoPs). The proposed rule includes changes to the current long-term care RoPs and survey process designed to reduce excessively burdensome and overly prescriptive regulations, while allowing centers to focus on providing high-quality care. AHCA has provided a detailed summary of the proposed rule here.

The proposed rule provides a 60-day public comment period that provides AHCA and member centers an opportunity to submit comments to CMS. All comments must be submitted to CMS by 5:00pm Eastern Time on Monday, September 16th, 2019.  

The following are resources and templates to assist you with submitting your comments to CMS before the September 16 deadline:
