August 26, 2020:
We've made a couple important change to the initial referral review denial process:
- After a initial referral is denied, this automatically closes the initial referral and the associated survey. Providers no longer need to go back into the NSH application to close the initial referral.
- After an initial referral is denied by the region, the referral and the survey associated with the initial referral are closed.
- A new survey can be completed immediately after a survey and initial referral is closed. Providers do not need to wait for 45 days to complete a new survey.
