Conditions of Participation: Guide to Compliance
The Home Care Alliance of MA put together a COP Task Force consisting of an expert team of home health professionals. This task force developed guidelines to assist Home Health Agencies with the understanding on the new standards in order to stay in compliance. The interpretive guidelines (IG) have not yet been published by CMS; these guidelines are the interpretation of this task force. Once the IG's are released, it is the responsibility of the Home Health Agency to review those guidelines to insure compliance.
Though the CoP Guide is available to Alliance members at no cost (log-in required), non-members may purchase an electronic version here. Upon purchase, you will receive an email with a link to download the PDF.
