CHA Regulatory Tracker Helps Members Stay Informed of Upcoming Federal Regulations

In preparation for another busy regulatory season, CHA reminds members that information on proposed and final federal rules, as well as executive orders, can be found on a dedicated page of the CHA website. Developed to help members stay on top of numerous regulations, CHA’s Regulatory Tracker highlights open, forthcoming and final rules along with summaries of the regulations, opportunities for education through member forums, CHA draft and final comment letters and key analyses to help members understand the impact for their organization and California broadly. The page has recently been updated with a calendar of expected regulations for 2018.

Beginning in mid-April, CHA expects the release of proposed rules addressing acute care hospitals paid under the inpatient prospective payment system, inpatient psychiatric facilities, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, skilled-nursing facilities and hospice care for federal fiscal year 2019. In addition to reporting on these rules in CHA News, CHA will update the regulatory tracker to include the latest information.
