Civil Money Penalties (CMPs)

Project requests shall be submitted to the Office of Licensure and Certification using the request form.

  • A civil money penalty (CMP) is a monetary penalty the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) may impose against skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), nursing facilities (NFs), and dually-certified SNF/NF for either the number of days or for each instance a facility is not in substantial compliance with one or more Medicare and Medicaid participation requirements for Long Term Care Facilities. A portion of CMPs collected from facilities are returned to the States in which the CMPs are imposed. State CMP funds may be reinvested to support activities that benefit nursing facility residents, and that protect or improve their quality of care or quality of life.
  • CMP funds must be used to support activities that benefit nursing home residents in South Dakota. The specific use of CMP funds collected from Long Term Care Facilities as a result of federally imposed CMPs must be approved by SD Department of Health and by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Regional Office on behalf of the Secretary (CMS). Outlined below is the process to follow when requesting use of Civil Money Penalty (CMP) funds.
    • Project requests shall be submitted to the Office of Licensure and Certification using the request form. You may email the request directly to chris.qualm@state.sd.us.
    • Please include information in the request reflecting support by partners or health facility.
    • Response to CMP project requests will be either:
      • An approval;
      • A denial, with explanation; or
      • A request for more information.
    • CMP funds may not be used to enlarge or enhance an existing appropriation or statutory purpose that is substantially the same as the intended project(s) or use(s).
