The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced this morning that it is extending the comment period for its proposed rule for the reform of requirements for long-term care facilities, including skilled-nursing facilities (SNFs). The revisions are the first comprehensive review of the requirements since 1991. The new deadline for comments is Oct. 14. CHA will submit comments on behalf of members by the new Oct. 14 deadline. A summary of the proposed rule is available on the CHA website.
