Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 18, September 25, 2021

In order to receive vendor payments from the State Department for care of assistance recipients, a nursing facility must enter into a provider agreement with the Department, in such form as the Department prescribes. For the purposes of this section, the term "nursing facility" includes an intermediate care facility for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IID). The facility's provider agreement with the Department carries with it the responsibility of said nursing facility to subscribe to the terms and conditions for payment of care to recipients promulgated by the Colorado Medical Services Board in its rules and regulations set forth in this staff manual. Such nursing facilities also must adhere to all pertinent requirements of federal and state law, and to the rules, regulations, and requirements as prescribed by CDPHE in its minimum standards for nursing facilities. This means that the nursing facility must be duly and appropriately licensed, provide for the use of qualified staff and the provision of nursing care, and adhere to those regulations with respect to the number and qualifications of nursing personnel required by CDPHE in giving services to recipient patients.

All nursing facilities are required, as a condition for both initial and continuing participation, to comply with the provisions of Section 601 of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Annual on-site inspections for assurance of compliance will be made by CDPHE.

In addition, the nursing facility is required to maintain proper accounting of the personal needs funds of recipients as provided in 10 CCR 2505 -10 section 8.482.5.

Participation in the Colorado Medicaid program of nursing facilities and/or nursing facility beds is limited to the regulations at 10 CCR 2505-10 sections 8.430 et seq.
