Medicare and Medicaid Program; Revisions to Certain Patient's Rights Conditions of Participation and Conditions for Coverage
Document Number: 2014-28268
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-12-12
Agency: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, Department of Health and Human Services
This proposed rule would revise the applicable conditions of participation (CoPs) for providers, conditions for coverage (CfCs) for suppliers, and requirements for long-term care facilities, to ensure that certain requirements are consistent with the Supreme Court decision in United States v. Windsor, 570 U.S.12, 133 S.Ct. 2675 (2013), and HHS policy. Specifically, we propose to revise certain definitions and patient's rights provisions, in order to ensure that same-sex spouses in legally-valid marriages are recognized and afforded equal rights in Medicare and Medicaid participating facilities.
