Most SNFs don’t know they’ve been fined — are you one of them?
Last year, CMS enacted sweeping new requirements for COVID-19 reporting by nursing homes, including the threat of hefty fines for failure to comply. In case you were wondering, CMS has followed through on its promise, issuing more than $8 million in COVID-19 reporting fines to date. The month of March 2021 alone saw a 400% uptick in fines.
Perhaps the biggest problem: Most LTC providers are not even aware they have been fined. And many don’t understand the CMS “Impose” process or their rights for payment or appeal.
In this timely webinar, we’ll take an in-depth look at trends in the data and review each type of letter you might receive from CMS. We’ll explain how to remain in compliance with F-tag F884 and avoid CMS fines, and we’ll provide and overview of how the appeals process works, in case your facility gets hit with a fine.

- The various types of fine letters and what each means
- Which CMS CASPER reports are related to COVID-19 reporting
