• Revised Guidance for Tag F492

    Monday June 18, 2012

    Current guidance in Appendix PP of the State Operations Manual for Tag F 492, 42 CFR ยง483.75(b) and (c) States that this tag should be cited only when the authority having jurisdiction has both made a determination of noncompliance and has taken a final adverse action as a result. There has been confusion as to whether this requirement may be cited when a facility simply does not meet a State regulation. This memorandum clarifies and revises the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) guidance to Surveyors in Appendix PP of the SOM regarding citations under Tag F492.

    June 1, 2012 CMS issued a revision and clarification to the Interpretive Guidance for F492. The effective date of this memo is immediately. These changes will be incorporated into the next revision of Appendix PP of the SOM. Please read the attached document for details.
