CMS Approved RA SNF - As of March 15, 2013
Welcome to the AHCA RA Information Page. This page is designed to provide you with timely information on RA SNF activity. Any issues reviewed by the RA must first be approved by CMS and posted to the RA websites.
We will cull the on-line postings of CMS-approved RA issues by RA Region and post here each Friday. Be sure to consistently check the approved issues of all four Regions because issues in one RA Region can quickly migrate to another. In addition, CMS may share this information to other approved CMS entities which may include, but not limited to other MACs, CERT contractors, and ZPICs.
