Sign a letter to CMS! Send your own letter!
We are hearing that any day now the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) may be taking action that could undermine and/or delay implementation of the revised federal nursing home regulations. The rules provide important new protections for residents and need to be preserved.
CMS needs to hear from all of us that weakening and delaying the regulations is not acceptable! Advocacy is needed this week. Below are some very simple and fast actions you can take to tell CMS to retain and implement the rules.
- Sign on to a Consumer Voice letter urging CMS to retain the requirements and implement them without delay. Sign-ons are due by COB November 15. Due to the urgency, we cannot extend the deadline.
- Send in your own letter. We are providing a sample letter for organizations to submit or use to create their own letter. This sample letter can be easily adapted for use by individuals. Send your letter by November 17, 2017.
- Do BOTH – sign on and send your own letter.
Your advocacy is important – thank you!
