The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has finalized the rules governing home health agencies, thus implementing significant changes to Home Health Conditions of Participation (HHCoPs). The new CoP’s enhance the standards for patient rights, care planning, and care coordination, and include two new CoPs — quality assessment and performance improvement (QAPI) and infection prevention and control. The revised HHCoPs go into effect July 13, 2017. Throughout the years, CMS has made several revisions to the HH CoPs however, many of the current CoPs have remained unchanged since their inception. For Home Health Agencies, many of the revisions will present significant process, operational and cultural changes. Home health agencies (HHAs) must meet the Medicare HH CoPs in order to participate in the Medicare program. Agencies that fail to meet any of the HH CoPs are at risk, at a minimum, for the imposition of a number of sanctions and potentially at risk for program termination.
