HCP Partners with NAHC to Offer Webinar on the CMS Emergency Preparedness Rule

 

CHC and HCP, in partnership with

The National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC)
are pleased to present:

 Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid-Participating Home Health and Hospice Providers

A Six-Part Webinar Series

Beginning in November 2017, Medicare and Medicaid providers – including home health and hospices – must meet a host of new requirements of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Emergency Preparedness Rule that are designed to ensure that agencies have the necessary planning in place to provide safe care for patients in any type of emergency. Providers must be fully compliant by November 15, 2017.


LHCSAs and the New Rule

Licensed home care services agencies (LHCSAs) that are accredited by the Joint Commission, Accreditation Commission for Health Care, or the Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) will be expected to meet the requirements of the Rule to maintain their accredited status. And, some managed care organizations, such as the Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) program and some managed care organizations that contract with various vendors and/or agencies may also require these entities to adhere to the Rule as part of their contracts.
