The attached memo
from the Health Care Financing
Administration (HCFA) revises a memo sent to the states September 29, 2000
that was attached to DSL-BQA-01-010, sent February 19, 2001.
The September 29, 2000 memo from HCFA states that the date of the
revisit that confirms compliance is the date the facility is certified as
being in compliance. The current memo revises this directive and provides
a course of action for certifying compliance based on the seriousness of
the noncompliance and the number of revisits that have already occurred.
This revised policy is effective immediately. If you have questions
about this policy, please contact Jan Eakins at (608) 266-2055.
