CMS Proposed Rule on Disclosures of Nursing Facility Ownership

This session provided an overview of a recent proposed rule on disclosures of nursing facility ownership that would require nursing facilities to report whether private equity firms or real estate investment trusts have an ownership stake in the facility. This change is generally consistent with the Commission’s recommendation that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services collect and report more data on nursing facility ownership in a standard format that enables analysis.

The Commission discussed potential areas for comment.
