Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 74 / Friday, April 17, 2015 / Notices and AAAASF’s ability to provide continuing surveyor training. ++ Compare AAAASF’s processes to those we require of State Survey Agencies, including periodic resurvey and the ability to investigate and respond appropriately to complaints against accredited OPTs. ++ Evaluate AAAASF’s procedures for monitoring OPTs it has found to be out of compliance with AAAASF’s program requirements. (This pertains only to monitoring procedures when AAAASF identifies non-compliance. If noncompliance is identified by a State Survey Agency through a validation survey, the State Survey Agency monitors corrections as specified at § 488.7(d). ++ Assess AAAASF’s ability to report deficiencies to the surveyed OPT and respond to the OPT’s plan of correction in a timely manner. ++ Establish AAAASF’s ability to provide CMS with electronic data and reports necessary for effective validation and assessment of the organization’s survey process. ++ Determine the adequacy of AAAASF’s staff and other resources. ++ Confirm AAAASF’s ability to provide adequate funding for performing required surveys. ++ Confirm AAAASF’s policies with respect to surveys being unannounced. ++ Obtain AAAASF’s agreement to provide CMS with a copy of the most current accreditation survey together with any other information related to the survey as we may require, including corrective action plans. In accordance with section 1865(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the November 21, 2014 proposed notice also solicited public comments regarding whether AAAASF’s requirements met or exceeded the Medicare CoPs for OPTs. We received no public comments in response to our proposed notice. IV. Provisions of the Final Notice tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES A. Differences Between AAAASF’s Standards and Requirements for Accreditation and Medicare Conditions and Survey Requirements We compared AAAASF’s OPT accreditation requirements and survey process with the Medicare CoPs of part 485, subpart H and the survey and certification process requirements of parts 488 and 489. Our review and evaluation of AAAASF’s OPT application, which were conducted as VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 Apr 16, 2015 Jkt 235001 described in section III of this final notice, yielded the following areas where, as of the date of this notice, AAAASF has completed revising its standards and certification processes in order to meet the requirements at: • Section 488.4(a)(3)(ii), to ensure surveyors are provided the necessary tools to evaluate compliance with the Medicare conditions. • Section 488.4(a)(3)(iii), to ensure the accreditation review process and accreditation decision making process meets the Medicare requirements, the following was modified: ++ Policy related to how AAAASF verifies an organization without a CMS certification number (CCN) seeking an initial survey has completed the Medicare enrollment application prior to receiving an accreditation survey; ++ Policy for establishing an effective date for renewal surveys; ++ Policy for withdrawals and terminations; and ++ Guidance and instructions on how plans of correction are handled when they are not adequate. • Section 488.4(a)(6), to address the requirement where complaints that do not rise to the level of requiring an onsite investigation are tracked and trended for potential focus areas during the next onsite survey. • Section 488.9, to address the number of medical records reviews that must be completed onsite. • Section 488.26(b), to ensure survey reports contain the appropriate level of deficiency (that is, standard versus condition). • Section 488.28(a), to ensure plans of correction correct the cited deficiencies, include thresholds of compliance and are sent timely. B. Term of Approval Based on our review and observations described in section III of this final notice, we approve AAAASF as a national accreditation organization for OPTs that request participation in the Medicare program, effective April 22, 2015 through April 22, 2019. V. Collection of Information Requirements This document does not impose information collection requirements, that is, reporting, recordkeeping or third-party disclosure requirements. Consequently, there is no need for review by the Office of Management and Budget under the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995.
