CAH Necessary Provider documentation needed for CMS survey

December 3, 2015

As a reminder, CMS requires all Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) that are designated Necessary Providers (NPs) to provide documentation during their survey that proves the hospital received this designation from the state prior to 2006. WSHA has worked with CMS and the Department of Health to determine that a copy of your hospital’s original CAH application and the accompanying letter stating your hospital’s designation as a CAH are sufficient to meet this requirement. If your hospital does not have this documentation on file, please email Jacqueline Barton True at and she will work with DOH to get a copy sent to your hospital. (Jacqueline Barton True)
