Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

CMS oversees the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Nursing facilities that provide services under these programs must be certified as meeting federal minimum requirements established by Congress. To receive payment under the Medicare / Medicaid programs, nursing facilities must be in compliance with the requirements at 42 CFR Part 483, Subpart B. Certification is achieved through routine facility surveys conducted by the South Dakota Department of Health, Office of Health Care Facilities Licensure and Certification through a contract with CMS. Additionally, the Administrative Rules of South Dakota, Article 44:73, Nursing Facilities, require all nursing facilities to obtain a license from the department.
