Webinar Series Overview:  Home Health’s first set of NEW Conditions of Participation are HERE and effective on July 13, 2017.  That is NOT a lot of time to prepare as there are many new items and changes.  Our four-part series will first talk about the key changes and principles of the CoPs. Then we will go over in detail each of the Conditions and methods to comply.

The surveyors will be held by CMS to perform surveys using these new CoPs, so you will not want to wait until implementation time to learn what it means for your agency!
