Deficit Reduction Act
Employee Information Requirements
This document was prepared by AHA's outside counsel, Hogan & Hartson. Its purpose is to assist hospitals that want to begin assessing their current policies and developing DRA-related information. It walks-through the new mandates in the statute and provides some of the background information for compliance. It is not legal advice and once CMS issues its guidance to states, hospitals will need to review that guidance to come into full compliance. The information provided on state laws is our best assessment of what is in place today. Your local counsel or state hospital association will have the most current information. If you have any questions related to this information, please contact Maureen Mudron, Washington counsel, firstname.lastname@example.org or 202.626.2301.
