Analysis of Proposed Nursing Home Regulation Changes
LeadingAge National has analyzed the proposed changes to the nursing home Requirements of Participation (RoPs) and produced a summary of the 110-page document. The changes affect a number of current and soon-to-be effective (Phase 3) requirements. In proposing the changes, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) identifies obsolete and burdensome regulations that could be eliminated or reformed to improve effectiveness or reduce unnecessary reporting requirements and other costs, with a particular focus on freeing up resources that health care providers, health plans, and states could use to improve and enhance resident health and safety.
