On February 20, VNAA hosted an all member conference call with Gill Deford, Director of Litigation at the Center for Medicare Advocacy and the lead attorney on the legal settlement on the Improvement Standard. The settlement, finalized on January 24, 2013, was the result of a class action lawsuit, Jimmo v. Sebelius, will eliminate a CMS policy that required Medicare beneficiaries to show a likelihood of medical or functional improvement before Medicare would pay for skilled nursing and therapy services.

This call was recorded for members who could not participate on the phone. This recording will be available until May 1, 2013. To access the recording, please click here.
