Requirements Of Participation
An interesting phenomena occurred Tuesday when we asked providers for the toughest part of complying with Phase 2 provisions of the Requirements of Participation.
Despite efforts from provider groups and lawmakers to delay Phase 2 of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Requirements of Participation, the new survey process is expected to take effect Tuesday.
With just over one month to go before the regulations kick in, a group of senators has sent a letter to federal health officials asking for a delay of Phase 2 of the requirements of participation.
More than 120 House Representatives have joined in signing a letter that asks the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to "re-evaluate" the requirements of participation for long-term care providers.
