SNF/NF Requirements of Participation

In October 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a final rule revising the Medicare and Medicaid Requirements of Participation (RoP) for nursing centers. This represents the first comprehensive revision to the regulations since 1991. The changes to the RoP are significant, which is why the American Health Care Association (AHCA) has developed a number of resources to help members implement the detailed requirements.

AHCA Resources for Members to Comply with RoP and New Survey Process

AHCA encourages member providers to access free resources and tools including action briefs, checklists, and webinars on the RequirED section of ahcancalED, the Association’s education portal.
