Nursing Homes Go to Court to Stop Residents from Going to Court

On  October 17, nursing home industry group American Health Care Association (AHCA) and some individual nursing homes filed suit in Mississippi to stop a proposed federal ban on pre-dispute arbitration agreements.  The ban, which is to go into effect on November 28, was recently published in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) overhaul of the country’s nursing home rules. Remarkably, AHCA concedes that nursing homes have to coerce residents into signing pre-dispute arbitration agreements at admission because no person in their right mind would sign one after a dispute has arisen.
