Certified Under Time-Limited Agreements
• The rule was published May 16, 2012 – Beginning on that date, ICF/IID’s are no longer subject to time-limited agreements. However, they are to be surveyed for re-certification an average of every 12 months and at least once every 15 months.
• If during a survey the survey agency finds a facility does not meet the standards for participation the facility may remain certified if the survey agency makes two determinations – The facility may maintain its certification if the survey agency finds Immediate Jeopardy doesn’t exist, and if the facility provides an acceptable plan of correction.
• An ICF/IID may be decertified under procedures outlined in Section 3012 of the State Operations Manual. More specifically, a facility may be decertified if an immediate jeopardy finding remains unabated after 23 days or if it fails to regain compliance with conditions of participation after 90 days.
