Priority Alert Week #5: CMS Requirements of Participation

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

In our ongoing CMS letter writing campaign, this week we are attaching the draft comments related to the proposed changes to pharmacy regulations that was shared with us by the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists.  Please review this document and use it as a guide only to develop your own comments. The deadline to submit comments has been extended to October 14.  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.

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