Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoPs)

Jan 13, 2017 – CMS modernizes CoPs for home health agencies (HHAs) that serve Medicare patients and changes are effective from July 13, 2017 with a proposed delay of 6 months. National Association for Home Care and Hospice (NAHC) predicts cost to be about $300 million, as an impact of new changes. EHRs must ensure that the transition of HHAs that bind to the new CoPs be automated, thereby ease the burden of the HHA and every involved personnel. Those who fail to meet any of the HHA CoPs are at risk of a number of sanctions and potentially at risk of program termination.

Are you Compliance ready?

HHAs must meet the Medicare HH CoPs to participate in the Medicare program. But, beyond that, those that fail to meet any of the HH CoPs are at risk, at a minimum, for the imposition of a number of sanctions and potentially at risk of program termination.
