On October 21, 2022, CMS announces immediate changes to the SFF program requiring nursing homes to comply or face penalties.
The October 21, 2022 update to the CMS QSO 23-01-NH, which outlines the updated guidance for providers who participate in the Special Focus Facility program (SFF), comes as no surprise as the Biden-Harris administration clamp down on safety and quality in nursing homes across the nation. For facilities that continue to struggle with delivering safe, quality care, these changes may have a catastrophic effect on their ability to continue to operate or provide a much-needed service in their respective communities. The revised guidance makes it clear, improve now or be penalized. To learn more, please visit The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services or give us a call at (612) 808-9253 and we will assist.
