Submission Time Frames (cont'd)

Licensed ICFs/IID may submit their PoCs using Form 3724 and CMS 2567 at the same time. If submitted within the shorter time frame of 10 calendar days after the date the facility receives the forms, both forms will be considered timely.

If a licensed ICF/IID submits a PoC on the CMS 2567 form beyond 10 calendar days, it will be considered late.

Conversely, if a facility waits and submits both forms according to the state requirement on the 10th working day, then the CMS 2567 form will be considered late, resulting in possible consequences.

The facility is encouraged to submit its PoC and implement the corrective action as soon as possible. See Provider Letter 08-29.
