On July 16, 2015, the Federal Register published Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) proposed rule to reform the requirements for Long Term Care Facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid. CMS will be accepting comments to the proposed rules for 60-days. The 400-page proposed rule recommends the biggest overhaul to nursing home requirements since 1991.

This alert is the second in a series of four communications regarding the proposed rule reform for long term care facilities. Long term care providers and other interested entities should carefully review the proposed rule reform and submit any comments to the proposed rule to CMS/HHS by 5:00 pm EST on September 14, 2015.
