Long Term Care Division
The Long Term Care Division works under the regulatory authority and directives of the Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) to perform surveys and investigations of healthcare facilities. These surveys and investigations ensure that residents receive quality health care in a safe environment by confirming Long Term Care facilities are following the CMS regulations to receive Medicare/Medicaid payment for services.
Resources for Consumers
- The Michigan Long Term Care Ombudsman Program provides free and confidential advocacy services to residents in nursing homes, adult foster care, and homes for the aged. Ombudsmen are available to meet privately with residents to identify, investigate and resolve their concerns as well as answer questions and provide resources on a variety of long term care topics.
