SNF Beneficiary Notices

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

Current regulations mandate that residents of a skilled nursing facility must be notified when items or services may not be paid for by the Medicare program. Residents are also to be notified in advance of the discontinuation of Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B covered services. To meet this regulatory requirement, CMS has developed “beneficiary notices” that SNF providers are required issue to Medicare beneficiaries. Compliance with the issuance of these notices has been a focus of nursing facility surveys in the past and is now a mandated task for all standard surveys. Many facilities have received survey citations due to confusion and uncertainty related to these regulatory requirements. This module is designed to introduce you to the various beneficiary notices and identify when they are required to be issued.
