New Resource Available to Prepare for LTC Facility Assessment

Long Term Care; Programs and Resources; CMS; Regulations
​​AHCA recently developed a new member resource, a checklist, to assist skilled nursing facilities in preparing to meet the new requirements of the facility assessment. The new checklist outlines all the regulatory requirements that must be included in the facility assessment as stated in the rule. AHCA is developing additional resources to support these efforts which will be available soon. 

As a reminder, the facility assessment requirements were revised under the “Minimum Staffing Standards for Long-Term Care (LTC) Facilities and Medicaid Institutional Payment Transparency Reporting” final rule and are effective August 8, 2024. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently released updated guidance for the facility assessment rule (QSO-24-13-NH).
