Nebraska Medicaid Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Program


The Nebraska Civil Money Penalty (CMP) Program was adopted by Medicaid & Long-Term Care (MLTC) as a result of mandated Federal and State legislation.  The CMP program is funded through the collection of civil money penalties imposed against nursing facilities as a result of qualifying survey deficiencies.  DHHS MLTC is responsible for the facilitation of CMP payments to eligible stakeholders. 
Payments from the CMP fund are broken down under two classifications – emergency payments and grants. Both payment classifications have their own set of qualifications/criteria that must be satisfied in order to warrant release of CMP funds, which are discussed in the CMP Program Manual by following the link below.
DHHS MLTC, in collaboration with DHHS Public Health and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), work together in reviewing all CMP emergency fund and grant application reimbursement requests in order to determine appropriate payment based on both State and Federal CMP rules and regulations. 
DHHS will soon be accepting applications for the Nebraska CMP Grant Program
CMP grant applications will be accepted during the month of January 2017. For grant submission requirements, please refer to the CMP Program Manual below or the CMP Grant Instructions and application.
