Therefore, the Compliance Manual does not provide an exhaustive list of all the requirements that may appear in InnOFOs, noAs and other applicable laws, regulations and guidelines. This Compliance Manual does not apply to activities performed outside the scope approved by the HrSA`s Resource and Health Management Administration of projects.4 Health Center-Non-regulatory mailing program that remain in effect after the release of the Compliance Manual are listed in Schedule A. With the exception of these guidelines, the Compliance Manual replaces other previous non-regulatory public health program (NIP) submissions, program assistance letters (PALs), regional assistance memorandums, memorandums of understanding for regional program guidelines and other non-regulatory documents) related to Health Center compliance or qualification requirements. In the event of a conflict between a provision in the compliance manual and other non-regulatory documents issued by HRSA regarding compliance and/or authorization requirements, which control the provisions of the compliance manual. Previously published broadcasts, which are replaced by this manual, are not limited to: each health centre is responsible for maintaining its operations, including the development and implementation of its own operating procedures, in accordance with all the requirements of the Health Center and all other applicable federal, national and local laws and regulations.14 This includes, but is not limited to those that protect the common good, the environment and the prohibition of discrimination; State settlement and licensing laws; The national scope of practice laws; Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions for Coverage for FQHCs;15 and State Medicaid requirements. In carrying out all these control and compliance responsibilities, a health centre can consult with its private legal counsel. Health centres can also ask questions at contact points designated for these programs. The compliance manual serves as the basis for HRSA`s licensing and compliance provisions as well as HRSA`s audit processes for the Health Center program. HRSA updates or amends the compliance manual if necessary to allow for the implementation of other policies to demonstrate compliance with health centre requirements. Note: Health centres that do not prove compliance, as described in this manual, receive a condition for the award/designation.
In order to meet these conditions, health centres could demonstrate compliance with HRSA, either by submitting documents as described in the demonstration compliance sections of the manual, or by the health centre, which offers another opportunity to demonstrate compliance with the specified requirements, including the presentation of a declaration and documentation expressly proving compliance with these requirements. All responses to the conditions are subject to HRSA verification and approval (see Chapter 2: Monitoring of the Health Program). This Health Center Compliance Manual applies to all health centers that apply for authorization for 1 or receive federal premiums under the Health Center program approved by Section 330 of the Public Health Act (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C).
