CMS Memos on Survey Oversight and Discharges Violations

Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released two memoranda at the end of 2017 of importance to members, "Revised Federal Oversight Support Survey (FOSS) Process National Pilot", and" An Initiative to Address Facility Initiated Discharges that Violate Federal Regulations." NYSHFA alerted members in the December 28, 2017 Member Mailing. Now with the FOSS surveys beginning this month, AHCA has summarized information for members to review in preparation. Please see attached memo form AHCA.
