CMS inspections are about to resume — Are you ready?

CMS has announced that routine inspections for all Medicare- and Medicaid-certified providers and suppliers will soon resume, after suspending them as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic in March.

The agency plans the following surveys as soon as resources are available:

  • Onsite visits as specified in the revisit policy in the State Operations Manual, for surveys with end dates on or after June 1
  • Complaint investigations triaged as “Non-Immediate Jeopardy Medium”
  • Annual recertification surveys required to be conducted within 15 months from a provider’s last recertification survey

Our Survey Risk Report can address risk indicators by ranking facilities that may be prioritized for survey based on the criteria.
