On the Reports and Other Documents page ( http://wp.me/PtUlY-4g ), I have uploaded a Power Point presentation my firm has made available to clients covering the new Federal Conditions of Participation for SNFs and the implementation elements that are part of Phase 1 (titled “New COPS for SNFs Phase 1”). The presentation covers what is happening in terms of the new regulations arising out of the law, focused on Phase 1 requirements which began November 28. The presentation will also alert providers, etc. to Phase 2 issues as applicable.
Additional background information on the Phases and the Rule can be found on this site at these post references: http://wp.me/ptUlY-kU
As always, questions, etc. can be forwarded to me via a comment accompanying this post or via e-mail (contact information on the Author page). Remember, if you wish a reply/response, please include a valid e-mail address/contact with your post or question.
