Non-Compliance With the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Remains a Risk for Long-Term Care Facilities
Date:6/21/2013

Hoffman Estates, Illinois (PRWEB) June 21, 2013

Kaegem, Corp., which provides compliance services for various industries, today addressed concerns over long-term care facilities risk of non-compliance with requirements arising from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. Of particular significance to facility administrators and compliance officers, the ACA set March 23, 2013, as the deadline by which skilled nursing facilities must adopt effective compliance and ethics programs.

As Kaegem Vice President of Operations Everett Grady noted, “an alarming number of long-term care facility administrators are unaware the compliance deadline has passed with no extension, leaving them at risk for open-ended fines. We are making every effort to raise awareness of this issue and provide the auditing and documentation support these facilities need to ensure complete compliance.”

Grady said certain administrators have expressed confusion over a highly publicized January 2013 article, which stated the U.S. Department of Labor had postponed the March 1, 2013 ACA “deadline for employers to provide written notices to their employees about the state health care Exchanges that will be operating beginning in 2014.”1 The problem this poses for long-term care facilities is that the specific deadline the article addressed has absolutely no impact on the March 23 deadline to establish compliance and ethics programs. Therefore, many well-intending healthcare facilities remain at serious risk for non-compliance penalties without even knowing it.
