The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is holding another Open Door Forum for those interested in skilled nursing and other long-term care options at 4 p.m. (Eastern time) Tuesday.

Rich Lawlor and David Dupre will lead the Washington-based session, which is open to all callers. To participate, call (800) 837-1935 and give conference number 4381995.

After the informational session, which traditionally includes a full Q&A session involving listeners or attendees and CMS staff at numerous sites, officials will ask for feedback to gauge the effectiveness of the program. Open Door Forums for providers in numerous healthcare sectors were begun under the watch of Thomas Scully, the former CMS administrator who left his post for the private sector in December.
