Get expert guidance to help prepare your agency to comply with the CMS' new CoPs
After nearly 20 years, CMS has moved forward with drastic revisions to its Medicare and Medicaid Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoPs).
With the biggest overhaul since 1989, home health agencies now more than ever, need best practices, strategies and tips to help minimize the burden of complying with the new Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs). Experts expect the changes to cost agencies more than $293 million overall in the first year alone, and about $290 million in years two and thereafter. The revised CoPs will take agencies nearly 3.8 million hours for agencies to collect the necessary information to be in compliance.
The rule was finalized on Jan. 9, and will be effective July 13 – giving home health agencies only six months to comply.
The new CoPs introduce four new categories and a raft of new standards your agency is not prepared to face. Significant adjustments to processes and resources will be required to comply with CoPs for patient rights, care planning, quality assessment and performance improvement (QAPI), and infection and prevention control.
