When It Rains It Pours!

September 01, 2023

On September 1, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the Minimum Staffing Standards for Long-Term Care (LTC) Facilities and Medicaid Institutional Payment Transparency Reporting proposed rule, which seeks to establish comprehensive nurse staffing requirements to hold nursing homes accountable for providing safe and high-quality care for the over 1.2 million residents receiving care in Medicare and Medicaid-certified LTC facilities each day.

This will impact ICF/IID’s, but will not impact BH or HCBS DD Services!  The link to the proposal is on the Provider Quicklinks page.
