441—81.37(249A) Action when there is no immediate jeopardy.
81.37(1) Termination of agreement or limitation of participation. If a facility’s deficiencies do not pose immediate jeopardy to residents’ health or safety, and the facility is not in substantial compliance, the facility’s provider agreement may be terminated or the facility may be allowed to continue to participate for no longer than six months from the last day of the survey if:
a. The department of inspections and appeals finds that it is more appropriate to impose alternative remedies than to terminate the facility’s provider agreement;
b. The department of inspections and appeals has submitted a plan of correction approved by CMS; and
c. The facility agrees to repay payments received after the last day of the survey that first identified the deficiencies if corrective action is not taken in accordance with the approved plan of correction and posts bond acceptable to the department to guarantee the repayment.
81.37(2) Termination. If a facility does not meet the criteria for continuation of payment under subrule 81.37(1), the facility’s provider agreement shall be terminated.
81.37(3) Denial of payment. Payment shall be denied for new admissions when the facility is not in substantial compliance three months after the last day of the survey.
81.37(4) Failure to comply. The provider agreement shall be terminated and all payments stopped to a facility for which participation was continued under subrule 81.37(1) if the facility is not in substantial compliance within six months of the last day of the survey.
