This letter is to share information about the Residential Care Services (RCS) transition to paperless work as it applies to delivery of Statements of Deficiency (SOD) and/or Enforcement letters for community Long-Term Care (LTC) settings.
Starting November 15, 2022, RCS began trial use of an electronic fax (E-Fax) service to deliver SOD and/or Enforcement letters to some Adult Family Home (AFH) providers, Assisted Living Facilities (ALF), Enhanced Services Facilities (ESF) and Certified Community Residential Supports & Services (CCRSS) providers.
The trial will take place in Regions 1, 2 and 3 through December 31st, 2022. The E-fax trial will determine if SOD and/or Enforcement letters can be delivered to providers using E-Fax so that:
• Timely notice of SOD and/or Enforcement letters is delivered and received
• RCS paper processes can transition to electronic process
