Understand COP's Basics and Save Yourself from Losing $10,000 a Day

Many Agencies go along with everyday tasks without thinking about the purpose behind what we are doing in homecare and what it means to be "in compliance"  with the COP's.

The Federal Conditions are some of the most misunderstood "rules" that we have in home health care. Most misunderstand that they are actually the building blocks for our businesses.  Any confusion related to these 15 "rules of engagement" can cause significant financial harm.  The game has changed.  The industry must become very familiar with the “rules” or find the funds to pay for non-compliance. Many clinicians have been indoctrinated in the “theory” without actual knowledge as to the meaning behind each COP.

This event conducted by out expert Arlene Maxim will explain the critical need to understand each COP and the impact of misunderstanding the basic foundation upon which homecare is based.

This presentation will give Agency Administrative Staff, Registered Nurses, Therapists, etc., insights related to the 15 Federal Conditions of Participation (COP's) and the basic responsibility of Agencies for compliance. Often Agencies misunderstand documentation requirements between COP's and Medicare Policy. In this webinar our expert will lift the veil of uncertainty and misunderstanding between the two. The challenge that will be addressed is related to how to document for compliance with the COP's.  

Our expert will provide references related to the Federal Conditions of Participation, examples of proper documentation as it relates to the COP's.
