In addition to the March 26, 2021 update to the LTC Survey Process, CMS has uploaded 2 additional updates as of April 8, 2021

The April updates consist of:

  • An updated F-Tag Waiver Guide which shows the terminated waivers.  This guide is found in the Survey Resources folder (.zip) beneath Downloads (see the April 8th hyperlink above in the 1st sentence of this blog) and
  • On that same website, you’ll find the updated Revision History for LTC Survey Process Documents and Files – also beneath the Downloads section.

If you’re a subscriber to the Briggs Survey Guide – Interpretive Guidelines for Long-Term Care (#1766) or the Briggs Survey Guide – Interpretive Guidelines for Long-Term Care – eManual (#1766E), you’ll be receiving both of these updates soon.
