BREAKING: Supreme Court’s Chevron ruling could defang CMS,” by Kimberly Marselas, McKnights LTC News

The Supreme Court this morning threw out a long-standing doctrine that has given regulatory agencies, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, broad discretion to set rules for the entities they cover. Abandonment of the so-called Chevron doctrine will likely have implications for nearly every US industry and could even affect the outcome of a lawsuit challenging CMS’ authority to issue a nursing home staffing mandate.”

LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:

The reign of authoritarian “progressives” at CMS may not be over yet, but at least there’s room again for evidence, logic, and litigation to fight back.
