Meeting with CMS
On September 15, 2015, AHCA had a meeting with CMS and participated in a stakeholder meeting convened by CMS. The first meeting included AHCA, LeadingAge and CMS. The second was a larger, invitation only Stakeholder Meeting on Future Changes to Five Star and Nursing Home Compare. Discussion points include issues concerning the Payroll Based Journal, anti-psychotic use rate, “focused surveys” not being categorized as complaint surveys, and coming changes to Five Star/Nursing Home Compare.
