The Affordable Care Act ("ACA") requires all nursing facility providers to have a Corporate Compliance Plan in effect by March 23, 2013. While the ACA required the Office of the Inspector General ("OIG") to promulgate regulations to provide guidance to facilities on the content, scope and requirements of this mandate, to date, the OIG has yet to issue any written materials. However, despite this failure to act, the statutory deadline imposed by the ACA remains in effect.
Over the years, the OIG has issued numerous guidelines that serve as a baseline for developing a successful compliance plan. Building upon that "model guidance," we have assisted nursing facility providers for more than a decade in developing successful compliance plans.
If you have questions regarding the viability of your existing Corporate Compliance Plan, or would like assistance in developing a plan to meet the March 23, 2013 statutory deadline, please contact David Marshall at (717) 620-2424.
