The Affordable Care Act (ACA), enacted in 2010, mandates that Medicare/Medicaid-certified nursing facilities and skilled nursing facilities have an effective compliance plan in place by March 23, 2013. ACA states that “[by March 23, 2013], a facility shall … have in operation a compliance and ethics program that is effective in preventing and detecting criminal, civil, and administrative violations … and in promoting quality of care.” Nursing facilities are the first health care providers required to enact a mandatory compliance plan.
