The Bronze application packets include important information about the program and eligibility requirements for skilled nursing care centers (SNCC), intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) and assisted living (AL) providers.
Member centers can also refer to resources such as the calendar for key dates, Bronze Criteria Series Viewing Guide, and the Management Viewing Guide for links to slides and seminars.
Please note, the definition of a Substandard Quality of Care
(SQC) in the application packet is current as of August 3, 2016; however, CMS
will be issuing the final Requirements of Participation rule later this year.
At that time, the definition of a SQC will change. The survey check will be
based on the new definition of an SQC.
a reminder, applicants can still apply and receive a feedback report and
recertify as an active recipient if they meet minimum standards even if they do
not meet the survey eligibility requirement. These applicants will simply be
ineligible to receive the award.
