On Feb. 2, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a revised FAQ guidance for Nursing Home Visitation – COVID-19 in Memorandum QSO-20-39-NH Revised. CMS clarified a facility may request the use of Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Reinvestment funds to purchase portable fans and portable room air cleaners with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA, H-13 or ¬14) filters to increase or improve air quality. A maximum use of $3,000 per facility including shipping costs may be requested. Expenses incurred on or after the release of Memorandum QSO-20-39-NH FAQ Revised 2/2/2022 are eligible for reimbursement.
CMS has developed an application template for requests for the use of Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Reinvestment funds to provide nursing homes with in-person visitation aids. Facilities must submit applications to INCMP@isdh.in.gov and email questions to Suzanne Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org.
