States may adapt the RoPs, as appropriate, to reference state laws or regulations that may be relevant and we encourage you to do so as well.  Our goal was to build on the resources to help your organization understand the requirements and become compliant.  

PHASE 2 Tools and Resources:

Over the past year, LeadingAge has lobbied CMS to delay, retract and revise the Requirements of Participation.  Although there is not a full delay of Phase 2, CMS listened to our efforts and addressed our concerns about the implementation of the new requirements as well as the new LTC survey process.  There now is an 18-month moratorium on specific F-Tags from Phase 2. (S&C Memo 18-04-NH)  

As organizations are surveyed under the new LTC process, we want to hear your experiences.  Please contact me as surveys go underway and the team exits.
