REVISED REGULATIONS - RESOURCES

The long awaited phase II of the revised CMS regulations are here. Are you ready? Yes, it can feel very overwhelming but I believe in you! Activity Professionals have been providing high quality, person-centered, creative, adaptive, interdisciplinary activities for years now. You totally got this! This really is the time to strut your stuff and shine your light!

As of November 28, 2017 our beloved Ftag 248 is now referred to asFtag 679, Activities! It will take some getting used to.

In my research, I've found some excellent resources for you. Please be sure to check them out if you haven't done so already.

I'll add to it as we go along. We are all in this together so if you have a great resource, please feel free to let me know and I'll include it on this page. I know you are going to do great. Go get 'em!
