Certificate of Need (CON) Quarterly Survey

The 3rd Quarter 2015 CON quarterly survey opened on October 1, 2015 and is due by October 15, 2015.  Facility administrators will be receiving a post card in the mail with the Facility Number and PIN, which are needed to log in.  This information can be found above the facility name on the post card.  The Facility Number and PIN have not changed, so you can also obtain this information from past survey letters.  Be sure to record and save these numbers for future surveys.

Survey instructions are available once you are logged in, and can be found by pressing HELP at the bottom of the survey.  If you have any questions, please send an email to consurvey@health.mo.gov or call 573-526-8553.

Per 19 CSR 30-82.010 (8) Every skilled nursing facility, intermediate care facility, residential care facility and assisted living facility issued a license or temporary operating permit by the department shall submit the required certificate of need quarterly surveys to the department on or before the fifteenth day of the first month following the previous Social Security quarter.

 Failure to respond could cause the facility to become ineligible for expansion under CON law.  It could also result in a competitor being granted a CON to build or expand in the facility’s service area.
