AHA supports proposed changes to home health CoPs

AHA News Now

The AHA today voiced support for a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed rule that would revise the Conditions of Participation for home health agencies. “We applaud CMS for continuing to update CoPs for health care providers and to ensure that regulations are current, reflect the best and most recent knowledge about care delivery, and embody high expectations for quality of care,” wrote AHA Executive Vice President Rick Pollack. Among other recommendations, AHA requested that CMS adopt an effective date that is one year after the release of the final rule and provide resources to help home health agencies implement its provisions at lower cost.
