Newly Reformed Requirements of Participation for Long-Term Care Facilities Issued

Beth Martino

As many of you know, the final Requirements of Participation became available last week and will be published in the Federal Register on October 4, 2016. AHCA immediately issued a press statement.

AHCA is providing members with information, tools, and resources to help you be successful in the implementation of the requirements.

To begin that effort, AHCA has hosted two webinars to brief members on the new requirements. Both webinars included a high-level summary of the changes followed by a focus on the first phase of the three-year phase in. Recordings of the webinars are posted online here.

As a reminder, there will be a three-hour intensive seminar about the final rule on Sunday, October 16, in Nashville at the AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention. The session is titled Requirements of Participation: A Deeper Dive into Key Changes and will be held Sunday from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM in Governor’s Ballroom B at the Gaylord.

Please note that conference attendees DO NOT need to pre-register, RSVP, or sign up for this session. It is included in the full convention meeting package.
