Formal Assessment of Vendors for CMS Final Rule

This Fall, DDS will begin formally assessing identified vendors for compliance with the CMS Final Rule, through a combination of vendor self-surveys as well as onsite visits.  Any setting that has the effect of isolating clients from the broader community (limited opportunities for interaction with the broader community, restriction of choice of activities outside of the setting, physically located apart from the broader community, etc.) will be presumed to have the qualities of an institution.
