Thank You to Those Who Signed Our Letter to CMS on Arbitration

August 05, 2016

On July 25, the New York Times published a powerful editorial calling on CMS to ban pre-dispute arbitration clauses in nursing home contracts in its final nursing home rules.  These are clauses that require residents to agree to arbitration and sign away their right to a jury trial in the event they suffer injury or abuse while in the facility. The editorial gives us another great opportunity to advocate for strong nursing home regulations. Thank you to all the individuals and organizations who signed onto our letter to CMS calling for the agency to ban pre-dispute arbitration clauses in nursing home agreements once and for all.
