Finally – you can get your arms around the “new” Conditions of Participation for Home Health!  For much of 2017, Home Health Agencies were focused on the new Conditions of Participation.  What they were, what this meant for their agency, the process changes necessary, and how the CoP’s would affect reimbursement. 

Now that the new CoP’s are in effect, and the Final Interpretive Guidelines have been released, the Home Health industry has all of the information needed to make final changes and plans to comply with the Conditions.  This webinar will review the final interpretive guidelines for the new Home Health CoPs. It will focus on the key changes that your agency will need to focus on to ensure compliance.
