  • The Statement of Deficiencies

    Surveyors visit your facility, write any deficiencies on the Statement of Deficiencies form, and then provide it to you. Write your plans for corrections on the form and return it to KDHE. The Statement of Deficiencies:

    •Is the basic document available to the public about your facility's deficiencies and what is being done to remedy them.

    • Provides an opportunity for you to furnish documentation that requirements have been met.

Lets talk about rural health clinics l.jpg

Lets talk about rural health clinics!

Rural health clinic rhc l.jpg

Rural Health Clinic (RHC)

42 CFR 491.2 …. Means a clinic that is located in a rural area designated as a shortage area, is not a rehabilitation agency or a facility primarily for the care and treatment of mental disease, and meets all other requirements of this subpart.

CMS has advised KDHE that a RHC can operate

one rural health clinic from separate suite numbers within the same building with the same street address.

For example one or more rhc s on the first floor of this building and or l.jpg

For example , one or more RHC’s on the first floor of this building and/or ……

RHC #1 17-8918

RHC #2 17-8918

A rhc on the second floor could operate with a single medicare provider numbers l.jpg

… a RHC on the second floor could operate with a single Medicare Provider Numbers.

RHC #3


42 cfr 491 5 location of clinic l.jpg

42 CFR 491.5 Location of Clinic

If clinic or center services are furnished at permanent units in more than one location, each unit is independently considered for approval as a rural health clinic.

Each RHC requires their

own provider number if they are located in separate buildings.

The key to our or cms determination about whether or not one number will suffice is this l.jpg

The key to our (or CMS) determination about whether or not one number will suffice is this …

As long as both RHCs are provider-based and located on the campus of the main provider, they could be considered as one location.

The clinic would need to ensure the requirements located at 42 CFR 491.6(a) are met. Specifically, the clinic must be "constructed, arranged, and maintained to insure access to and safety of patients, and provides adequate space for the provisions of direct services."

Interpretive guidelines l.jpg


  • The Interpretive Guidelines and Survey Procedures for various providers or suppliers are located in the Appendices to the State Operations Manual (SOM). For example: Hospitals = Appendix A, Psychiatric Hospitals = Appendix AA, EMTALA= Appendix V, or Critical Access Hospitals = Appendix W. There are many other appendices. One way to obtain a specific Appendix is to go to the webpage for the Table of Contents page for the Appendices to the SOM. Once at that page ‘click’ on the Appendix you wish to access. The Table of Contents Page for the SOM is found at:


Survey and certification letters l.jpg


  • CMS Survey and Certification (S&C) releases information related to survey and certification guidance for various providers and suppliers to its Regional Offices and the State Survey Agencies through communications called Survey and Certification Letters. The letters are released on an ongoing basis. Once a letter is released, it is posted on the CMS website. The letters are organized by Federal fiscal years. For example, the first letter released for fiscal year 2009 would be labeled “S&C 09-01”. The S&C letters can be obtained at:
