CMS has released its long-awaited draft version of the interpretive guidelines for the revised Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoP) that take effect January 13, 2018—giving agencies less than two months to understand, implement, and comply with the new guidance.

The 85-page draft, released October 27, shows CMS is moving forward with plans to enforce the revised CoPs. This draft covers the four new categories and a raft of new standards your agency will need to prepare for, including patient rights, care planning, quality assessment and performance improvement (QAPI), and infection and prevention control.
