FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Washington, D.C. — Mark Parkinson, President and CEO, at the American Health Care Association (AHCA), made the following statement regarding the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule on the use of pre-dispute arbitration agreements:

“We are still reviewing and evaluating the final rule but we applaud CMS for allowing skilled nursing facilities to use pre-dispute arbitration agreements. We are concerned about CMS adding any conditions or administrative requirements when Congress has spoken on this topic.”
