NOTE: In the past, the CMS Dallas Regional Office frequently transmitted federal S&C letters from Baltimore to the states through "Regional Survey and Certification (RS&C)" letters. Today, states have online access to federal S&C letters at http://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Provider-Enrollment-and-Certification/SurveyCertificationGenInfo/Policy-and-Memos-to-States-and-Regions.html. Online access is quicker and reduces redundancy. The CMS Dallas Regional Office will continue to issue RS&C letters when a subject needs further clarification. For questions about a federal S&C letter, please contact the Regulatory Services Policy Unit in state office, at (512) 438-2179.
