A March 23, 2013, Deadline for Skilled Nursing Facilities and Nursing Homes

Alert | Corporate Compliance Alert

On March 23, 2013, a little over a month from now, nursing homes and skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) will be required to "have in operation a compliance and ethics program that is effective in preventing and detecting criminal, civil, and administrative violations under this Act." (Section 6102, Affordable Care Act) While this provision may come as a surprise to some, it shouldn't. The law was enacted three years ago and standards for effective compliance programs have been around for over a dozen years.
