Include the official name of the rule.
Provide a brief description of the rule in your own words.
Provide an analysis of the potential implications of the proposed rule to 1 or more health care stakeholders (e.g., providers, health insurers, consumers, public health departments, etc.). Consider the implications from ethical, socioeconomic, political, legal, or health outcome perspectives.
Include your position on the rule as a health care scholar-practitioner-leader (i.e., your support or disagreement with the rule). Defend your position with support from credible sources.
