Consumer Voice & Network Submit Comments on Proposed Changes to the Federal Nursing Home Regulations

October 16, 2015

On Wednesday, October 14th, Consumer Voice and members of the Consumer Voice network submitted final comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on proposed changes to the federal nursing home regulations. We would like to thank all of you who submitted comments and/or signed on to our comments on this important matter. We had over 160 individuals and groups submit comments to us for the proposed rule & over 70 national, state and local organizations - as well as over 100 individuals - sign on to our final comment letter! You can view Consumer Voice's final comments on the proposed rule here.

Now that the comment period for the regulations has closed, CMS must review all comments submitted prior to determining what the final rule will be. We will be certain to update our network with any news on this matter as it awaits further action. Thank you again for your advocacy!
