AHCA v. Price Update:  Preliminary Injunction Stands 

This past Friday a federal appeals court judge dismissed the scheduled hearing appealing the preliminary injunction granted to the American Health Care Association preventing enforcement of CMS rules banning the use of pre-dispute arbitration agreements by skilled nursing facilities.

This means that skilled nursing facilities may continue to use these agreements pending final disposition of the case by federal district court.

Sources suggest that the federal government’s petition to dismiss their appeal of the granted injunction indicates that the new administration may be revisiting the disputed regulation.
