Authorized organizations are instructed to notify SSA of any change, which may affect
the qualifying factors. (For example, loss of bonding, license revoked, less than
five beneficiaries being served, etc.)
SSA will reexamine an organization's status if information is received which indicates
that their qualifications may have changed.
We must assume, absent evidence to the contrary, that an authorized organization's
qualified status is continuing between annual licensing recertifications unless information
is received indicating an organization may no longer meet all the qualification factors.
If, upon reexamination, it is determined that an organization no longer meets all
the qualifying factors in GN 00506.100, revoke its authorization beginning with the first day of the month after the month
in which the decision is made. The revocation decision is not an initial determination,
which has appeal rights. However, the organization is offered the opportunity to request
an informal review of the decision.
EXCEPTION: A previously authorized organization temporarily serving less than five beneficiaries,
may continue to collect a fee with the approval of the FO (See GN 00506.400B.5.)
A payee may request in writing that it no longer wants to be a FFS organization for
