Consequences

Failure to submit a PoC, or failure to submit an acceptable PoC, within specified time frames could result in vendor hold and/or termination of the provider agreement.

Administrative penalties may be assessed for licensed ICFs/IID.

If the facility fails to submit a PoC, the regional survey office will contact the facility to determine why the facility did not submit the PoC.

If the region determines that the facility's reason for failing to submit a PoC is unacceptable, the regional survey office will follow the procedure for unacceptable PoCs.
