Interim Final Rule with Comment Period (IFC)-Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, and Adult Day Comments Requested!

Interim Final Rule with Comment Period (IFC)-Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, and Adult Day Comments Requested!

CMS-3414-IFC is the rule where SNFs are required to provide vaccine education and offer the vaccine to unvaccinated residents and staff, as well as reporting all staff and resident vaccination status to NHSN. They are asking for comments to be submitted no later than 5pm (EASTERN TIME) on July 12th

In addition, the rule solicits public comments on the potential application of these or other requirements to other congregate living settings over which CMS has regulatory or other oversight authority, including assisted living and adult day health.  You can either send your comments directly to Jodi Eyigor at LeadingAge National jeyigor@leadingage.org, or you can send them to me LHofmann@LeadingAgeWA.org and I will forward on. 

There are also options in the final rule to send them directly to CMS. Comments are being requested for ALL programs.
