Unified Agenda 0938-AG81

Home Health Agency (HHA) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) (CMS-3819-P)


This proposed rule would revise the existing Conditions of Participation (CoPs) that Home Health Agencies (HHAs) must meet to participate in the Medicare program. The CoPs were last revised in 1989. The new requirements will focus on the actual care delivered to patients by HHAs, reflect an interdisciplinary view of patient care, allow HHAs greater flexibility in meeting quality standards, and eliminate unnecessary procedural requirements. These changes are an integral part of our efforts to achieve broad-based improvements and measurements of the quality of care furnished through federal programs while at the same time reducing procedural burdens on providers.
