Guidance re: Eligibility for Performance Incentive Payments

Please click here for guidance regarding the performance incentive system, which was enacted by House Bill 1294. The performance incentive payment is a 10% rebate of the licensure renewal fee that facilities qualify for if, as part of an onsite relicensure survey, they:
  • fully and timely cooperated with the onsite survey process; 
  • had no significant deficiencies;
  • timely submitted an acceptable plan of correction; and 
  • corrected deficient practice in a timely manner. 
The performance incentive system regulations applicable to all licensed facilities – see 6 CCR 1011-1, Chapter II, Section 2.14 - became effective on March 17, 2014. (Note that home care agencies were eligible for performance incentive payments prior to this date and their processes served as a model in HB 1294 for expansion to all licensed facilities.)
