Mandatory Participation Begins in July. Are You Ready?

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to begin collecting direct care staffing information from all nursing facilities, including agency staff and contract staff, in an auditable, uniform format. The ACA mandates the data include the following:

  • Category of work performed
  • Census data
  • Hours of care provided per resident per day
  • Resident case mix
  • Staff turnover and tenure information

 To comply with the ACA requirements, CMS has developed the Payroll Based Journal (PBJ). To learn more about this requirement, visit the CMS site.

Thoroughly understanding this requirement and how you need to comply can be challenging. However, since mandatory participation begins in only a few short months, it is absolutely vital that you understand how this requirement impacts your facility and the steps you need to follow to be compliant.

Listen to this webinar presented by senior living experts Larry Lester and Patricia Boyer as they dive deep into this new ACA requirement and help you gain a better understanding of the specific data that needs to be entered into the journal.
