Mega-Rule Nursing Facility New Resources and Update
Share |
In an effort to keep members up to date regarding the implementation of the new CMS nursing home “mega-rule,” here are a variety of resources to assist members to prepare.

On-demand CMS training: CMS has on-demand, online training related to the Phase 1 requirements available for providers as described in a recent Survey & Certification letter. When the training materials are complete, CMS will post them here. The training will be available until July 2017. CMS will not track provider utilization of the training, and there is no completion test or certificate provided.

CMS Webinar Slides: This link provides access to the slides from the October 27, 2016, CMS webinar presentation, Long-Term Care Facilities: Reform of Requirements.

CMS Mega-Rule -- Phase I (NEW): This LeadingAge document highlights the rule's requirements, effective November 28, 2016.

Comprehensive Summary of the Final Rule (UPDATED): An 80-page summary of each section of the rule; key insights and points; a timeline for completion/effective dates; a comparison between key sections of the new rule and the current rule; suggested next steps for providers; and additional resources as available.

Mega Rule -- Side-by-Side Summary (NEW): This lengthy document compares the current nursing home requirements to the new/changed provisions contained in the mega-rule (our thanks to LeadingAge Minnesota).
