ADvancing States, NASDDDS and NAMD Submit Comments on Proposed Revisions to the Critical Incident Management Survey

On December 4th, 2023, ADvancing States, the National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD), and the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities (NASDDDS) submitted joint comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on the 2024 revised draft of the Critical Incident Management Survey.

We support CMS’s goal to identify and share best practices related to critical incident management and we believe there is great value in providing CMS with insight into the states’ current incident management systems. With this in mind, we requested that CMS provide additional information regarding the planned use of the survey results. We also encouraged CMS to consider survey revisions and timelines for completion of the survey that recognizes the considerable amount of time it takes for state staff to complete the survey. 

The comment letter includes specific recommendations to CMS on individual revisions and the overall strategy for implementation.
