Priority Alert Week #3: CMS Requirements of Participation

Author: Nancy Leveille and Karen Morris* Published in Clinical & Quality

In our ongoing CMS letter writing campaign, this week we are attaching NYSHFA’s Clinical & Quality comments for your review. Use them only to guide the development of your own. We think they will be helpful to get you started. We are targeting to have 150-200 members respond with at least one comment on a topic. We also suggest that you can go to AHCA's website: and click on Take Action (no password needed). It has a variety of resources to help you with your comments on all topics and you can also directly submit to CMS via their website. We recommend that you write your comments in Microsoft Word docs and then cut and paste into the CMS form. It should be an easier process for you.

Thank you. All your individual organizations' comments will make a difference.
