What CMS 1135 Waiver for Director of Food and Nutrition Services means for CDM, CFPPs

Published on Dec 08, 2021

CMS has issued a waiver for directors of food and nutrition services which grants an extension for training requirements that previously had a deadline of November 28, 2021.

This will allow individuals until January 16, 2022, to enroll in training program, which is an extension of another 5 weeks to meet the requirements.

ANFP has a meeting scheduled with American Health Care Association (AHCA) to discuss the CDM, CFPP credential and staffing qualifications in early January 2022.

AHCA is encouraging individuals to pursue training to ensure compliance with the regulation when the waiver ends. To learn more from AHCA, click HERE.
