Home Health Care News writes: The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has proposed delaying the implementation date for the new home health Conditions of Participation (CoPs) until January 2018. The proposal comes after home health industry associations and providers pushed back against the original implementation timeline for the CoPs, which were finalized in early January 2017. Instead of going into effect on July 13, 2017, the new CoPs—which govern how home health agencies qualify to participate in Medicare and Medicaid—would go into effect on January 13, 2018, under a proposed rule issued Friday by CMS. The proposed rule is subject to a 60-day public comment period, following its publication in the Federal Register, scheduled for April 3.
