The final rule surrounding the new Home Health Conditions of Participation (CoPs) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) was published in the Federal Register in January 2017. Home health agencies must comply with these conditions in order to receive payments from the Medicare program. (The effective date of the new Home Health CoPs has been delayed 6 months per the Delay of Effective Date Notice pubished in the Federal Register July 10, 2017. Home health agencies must be in compliance by January 13, 2018.)

During this quarterly Cardiovascular Learning & Action Network (CardioLAN) webinar, the HHQI team discusses how to align national home health requirements with improving cardiovascular outcomes. Money and time can get tight during this challenging period.
