SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – As of June 10, 2022, The Department of Health & Human Services – CMS (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) has issued an Involuntary Termination of The Waters of Robertson.
Notice to Public of Involuntary Termination of The Waters of Robertson
According to a release from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, (Link) the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is providing notice that on June 25, 2022, The Waters of Robertson, located at 104 Watson Road, Springfield, Tennessee MAP will no longer participate in the Medicare program. The Medicare provider agreement between The Waters of Robertson and the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) will be terminated on June 25, 2022, due to their failure to meet Medicare’s basic health and safety requirements.
The facility has been notified that Medicare will cease to pay for services furnished to Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries admitted after June 25, 2022, although payment may continue for up to 30 calendar days for patients admitted on or before June 25, 2022. CMS is committed to patient safety and quality of care. We are closely monitoring the relocation of Medicare and Medicaid patients to other facilities.
CMS requires facilities to meet certain health and safety standards to be certified as a Medicare provider. Involuntary termination of a provider agreement is generally a last resort after all other attempts to remedy the deficiencies at a facility have been exhausted. In this instance, CMS has found that The Waters of Robertson is out of compliance with CMS’s health and safety requirements.
While we understand the relocation of residents and patients can be challenging for all parties involved, CMS prioritizes patient safety and care quality.
For residents, patients, and their family members, CMS recommends visiting the following websites for additional assistance through the relocation process:
