Medicare and Medicaid Requirements of Participation for Long-Term Care Facilities
This proposed federal rule revises the requirements that care centers must meet to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. It will update or reorganize nearly all existing regulatory requirements; it will create new requirements; and new F-Tags will be created. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) view the rule as necessary to reflect advances in the theory and practice of service delivery and safety, and to achieve quality improvement.
