Nursing Home RoP Tools and Resources

Part of: Regulatory Information

We are working to prepare tools and resources for you to use to comply with the new CMS Requirements of Participation (RoPs). LeadingAge and state partners have contracted with Pathway, a consulting firm, to prepare the basic information you will need to understand the new regulations and update your policies and procedures.

As tools are developed, states may adapt them, as appropriate, to reference state laws or regulations that may be relevant and will encourage you to do so as well. We will notify you of the availability of these tools through newsletters and listservs.

We will let you know as new tools and resources become available.

Tools and resources are for LeadingAge members only. You will need your email and password to access these documents through the LeadingAge login.
