Non-Compliance With the Affordable Care Act (ACA) Remains a Risk for Long-Term Care Facilities
Date:6/21/2013

Hoffman Estates, Illinois (PRWEB) June 21, 2013

Kaegem, Corp., which provides compliance services for various industries, today addressed concerns over long-term care facilities risk of non-compliance with requirements arising from the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. Of particular significance to facility administrators and compliance officers, the ACA set March 23, 2013, as the deadline by which skilled nursing facilities must adopt effective compliance and ethics programs.

We are making every effort to raise awareness of this issue and provide the auditing and documentation support these facilities need to ensure complete compliance.”

Therefore, many well-intending healthcare facilities remain at serious risk for non-compliance penalties without even knowing it.
