Providence ElderPlace completes stellar CMS audit!

April 16, 2011

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) audits Providence ElderPlace every two years. In 2010, two CMS and four State auditors reviewed our PACE program, including Health Plan Operations, Medicare Part D and our direct care services.

The official word from CMS—a perfect 2010 PACE audit!

According to their report, Providence ElderPlace, Portland had “no findings” or “deficiencies” based on CMS and State review of our compliance with PACE and Part D regulations.

Items reviewed include our:

  • Complaint process
  • Safety procedures and policies
  • Infection control
  • Medication administration policies and procedures

This success is an indication of a deep commitment to our value of excellence and to the responsibilities of caring for those entrusted to us. A special thanks to those who helped with the audit and to all of our community partners who help us continue to provide compassionate care to our seniors.
