The Certification Bureau is responsible for ensuring that Montana facilities accepting Medicare and Medicaid payments meet the federal regulations required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Certification Bureau surveys the following facility types: hospitals, nursing homes, ambulatory surgical centers, rural health clinics, home health agencies, hospices, end stage renal disease facilities, psychiatric residential treatment facilities, outpatient physical therapy providers and intermediate care facilities for the mentally retarded.

The Health Inspection Surveyors look at many aspects of a facility's operation, including the care of residents and clients, the manner in which staff and residents or clients interact, and the environment
