Last week, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) completed their work on a proposed rule that revises the home health Conditions of Participation (HH CoPs). CMS may send the proposed rule to the Office of the Federal Register for publication, according to NAHC. Once the proposed rule is published, interested parties will have 60 days to submit comments. Home health agencies must meet the Medicare HH CoPs to participate in the Medicare program. Any agencies that fail to meet any of the HH CoPs are at risk for the imposition of a number of sanctions and also may be at risk for program termination.
