Get expert insights into the new administration's plan to change health care policy

The new Trump administration is eager to make changes that are sure to have a major impact on Medicare home health agencies. It is imperative that agencies stay abreast of Republican plans to change and/or repeal pieces of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and its direct effect on them. For example, the employer insurance mandate could be removed as a requirement. But even more uncertainty lies in the fate of regulatory requirements such as the face-to-face (F2F) requirement, bundled payment projects, value-based purchasing (VBP), pre-claim reviews, and the proposed Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoPs).

Don’t miss this training opportunity to gain early insight into the plans that the new administration has to change health care policy. Don’t put your agency at risk!
