(v) The terms of an admission contract by or on behalf of an individual seeking admission to the facility must not conflict with the requirements of these regulations.

Based on a review of clinical records and facility provided documentation, and interview with staff, it was determined that the facility failed to provide the required advanced notice, through a Notice of Medicare Non-Coverage (CMS 10123), regarding the termination of Medicare services for one of three residents sampled (Residents R1)

Findings include:

Review of Resident's R1 clinical record it revealed admission date on February 7, 2024, for short term rehabilitation. Resident's R1 funding source was Medicare skilled A services. Conntinued review of the clinical record revealed that Resident R1 was discharge from the facility on March 15, 2024. Then, Resident R1 was readmitted from the local hospital on March 19, 2024 with Medicare Part A benefits.

On March 26, 2024, at 12:21 p.m. an interview was held with the Social Worker Director who revealed that Resident R1 was discharged as the Medicare service benefits were exhausted. It was further reported when Medicare funding exhausted therefore, Resident R1 did not receive Notice of Medicare Non-Coverage (NOMNC) cms-10123 the right to appeal a denial of Medicare services.

On March 26, 2024, at 2:11 p.m. an interview was held with Administrator, Employee E1 and Business Director, Employee E6 who reported that Resident R1 was discharge mistakenly. Resident's R1's admission date was entered currently however, facility system started calculating Medicare remaining benefit days that were used from the Resident's R1 prior admission date in 2023; therefore, it gave a report to the facility that Resident's R1 Medicare benefits were exhausted versus facility determined that a resident no longer qualifies for Medicare Part A. Employee E1 confirmed that Resident R1 should have not been discharged on March 15, 2024. And if Resident R1 was appropriately qualified to be discharged Notice of Medicare Non-Coverage (NOMNC) cms-10123 should have been issued.
