Title: ●Culturally Competent and Person-Centered Requirements to Increase Access to Care and Improve Quality for All (CMS-3418) 
Abstract:

The proposed rule would establish culturally competent and person-centered requirements for all provider and supplier types that participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs. These requirements revise the Conditions of Participations/ Conditions for Coverage pertaining to governance, patient/resident/client rights (such as nondiscrimination and accessibility), clinical quality standards, quality assessment and performance improvement, staff training, discharge planning, and care planning in an effort to increase quality and improve access to health care. These proposals are in accordance with Executive Orders 13985, 13988, 13995, and 14031 on advancing racial equity and support for underserved communities through the Federal government, preventing and combating discrimination on the basis of gender identity or sexual orientation, and ensuring an equitable pandemic response and recovery.
