ANCOR created a template to use for submitting comments to the recent Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued Make Your Voice Heard request for information (RFI). The RFI provides a unique opportunity to weigh in directly with CMS about the challenges providers are experiencing and offer recommendations. We encourage you to take part in this and share with your networks! The deadline for response is Friday, November 4, 2022.

The template highlights data from ANCOR’s recent workforce survey and ANCOR’s comments from the House Energy and Commerce Committee request for information on disability policy to emphasize the impact of the direct support workforce crisis. We encourage you to utilize the template to inform and bolster your own comments.
