The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA)
required all Medicare/Medicaid Skilled Nursing Facilities to have
an effective Compliance and Ethics Program in place by March 23, 2013.
The primary purpose of the Compliance and Ethics Program is to
prevent, detect, and correct any fraud, abuse, or waste, to promote
quality of care, and to have an operational Compliance and Ethics
Program in place to meet applicable federal, state, and local laws
and regulations. In order to avoid potential exposure nursing
facility providers should take steps to implement the required
Compliance and Ethics Program.
