CoPs Final Interpretive Guidelines

December 20, 2018
12:00-1:30pm ET, Login at 11:45am ET



This webinar will review the Home Health Agency Final Interpretive Guidelines associated with the new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs). Clear, concise explanations will be shared along with examples from a former surveyor and someone who performs mock surveys. Join Sharon M. Litwin, RN, BSHS, MHA, HCS-D, as she shares what has been seen in actual agency surveys.

Sharon will provide a clear direction to take now that the Final Interpretive Guidelines have been released. Gain a better understanding of them and what they mean to agencies during a survey. Learn what it means and what is involved to truly follow the new CoPs and Interpretive Guidelines.

Major points/challenges that this webinar will help the audience overcome:

1. Understand and clarify the CoPs by learning the Interpretive Guidelines that surveyors use
2. Ensure your agency follows the guidelines to avoid deficiencies
3. Understand what to include in your agency’s policies, education and documentation
