AHCA Submits Comments to CMS on Adoption of 2012 Edition of the Life Safety Code

Lyn Bentley and Dana Halvorson

Earlier this week, AHCA submitted comments on behalf of AHCA member nursing centers and intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IIDs) to CMS on the proposed rule that adopts the 2012 Edition of the Life Safety Code.

The proposed rule was released on April 16, 2014, and would amend the fire safety standards for, among other provider types, Medicare and Medicaid participating long-term care facilities and ICF/IIDs. AHCA received member feedback, and incorporated these thoughts into the AHCA comment letter to CMS.

If you have any questions about the 2012 Edition of the Life Safety Code or AHCA submitted comments to CMS, please contact AHCA’s Senior Director of Regulatory Services, Lyn Bentley.
