Proposed CMS rule needs your comments by March 31.You should also advise your “C Suite” of the proposal and its impact. They should submit comments too.

Submit your comment at         http://www.regulations.gov/#!submitComment;D=CMS-2013-0269-0002

See the attachments for ASHE talking points, guidance on submitting comment, template for comments, ASHE presentation on the rule

There are links embedded below to get you to the entire proposed rule and some comments that have been submitted already

ASHE Insider: March 11, 2014

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) are accepting public comments on its proposed rule on emergency preparedness. The rule is available to read online. . About 150 comments regarding the proposal have already been submitted, including comments from the National Fire Protection Association. ASHE will be submitting comments before the March 31 deadline. ASHE Deputy Executive Director of Advocacy Chad Beebe, AIA, SASHE, offered the following suggestions to those who are working on their own comments:

The comments most likely to affect regulatory decisions are ones that are constructive and clear. Comments should be supported by sound reasoning, scientific evidence, or real-world examples of how your hospital or facility will be affected. Copying and pasting comments or information submitted by others decreases the effectiveness of both your comment and the comment of the original submitter. The best comments explain, in your own words, the positive or negative effects of the proposed rule on your facility and others like it. Remember that public comments are not votes – a single well-written public comment can pull more weight than thousands of form
