Overview Playbook and Checklist from AHCA on the Requirements of Participation

AHCA has developed a Playbook and checklist that provides a high level overview of the changes CMS made to the long term care facilities Requirements of Participation (RoP) and denotes in which of the three phases of implementation these changes need to be completed. They are intended to give centers an overview of the major changes that are explicitly stated in the new requirements so centers can know where to focus their efforts on meeting the new RoP.

Please note that these documents do not describe the implicit changes that may need to occur when implementing the explicit changes. In other words, the documents do not provide every action or task a center must take to comply with the new regulations.

Visit the VHCA-VCAL Requirements of Participation webpage for information on the regulatory changes.  AHCA resources can also be found on the AHCA ahcancalED RequireED webpage.

For additional resources to help you plan for the November 28 implementation date for Phase 1 of the rule, register for VHCA-VCAL’s November 14 education program, Jump Starting Phase 1 of the Requirements of Participation.
