Conditions of Participation Link

Here is a link to the .pdf of the new Medicare Hospice Conditions of Participation. I’ve gotten to page three of 757, so no great insight from me. The thing I was scanning for was the implementation information, and I was very happily surprised when I found it. Most were expecting a sixty day implementation period and hoping for ninety. We got 180! That gives us six months to figure out what the other 754 pages say and how to deal with them in our hospice programs. That is a relief.
