The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is the federal agency within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that administers the Medicare program and works in partnership with healthcare organizations nationwide. Compliance with CMS is vital for hospitals and large health systems seeking deemed status. Ongoing compliance with CMS is also a requirement for Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.
In California, new legislation known as the Continuum of Care Reform Act has required the California Department of Social Services to implement regulation standards to youth residential treatment facilities. Facility staff will now be required to integrate treatment, youth goals, therapy efficiency, billing for Medi-Cal services, and documentation into one unified process.
It has become increasingly common for hospitals and large healthcare systems to encounter CMS compliance surveys and CMS validation surveys in addition to their Joint Commission surveys. MVP Consulting Group is your trusted partner to help navigate the complex landscape that comes with CMS compliance and survey readiness. Our team of CMS compliance experts has worked with hospitals and health systems across the United States and is prepared to provide technical guidance on surveys/resurveys, and administer corrective action plans that are accepted by CMS.
- CMS Compliance Training: Our team of experts will train your team on the understanding and interpretation of CMS guidelines. At MVP, our consultants also provide policies, plans, and templates that have stood up against CMS compliance.
- Integrating CMS and TJC Requirements: During the consultation, we will crosswalk CMS guidelines with the Joint Commission requirements. It is important that your organization is equipped with the knowledge of both surveying agencies.
- CMS Mock Survey: For hospitals and healthcare systems responding to CMS validation and compliance surveys, we offer both remote and on-site support. In order to keep Medicare and Medicaid funding, our CMS compliance professionals have worked with hospitals around the country to assist them in creating their plans of correction and getting ready for CMS resurveys.
