Home Health Sanctions

Course image

CMS intends to finalize the tools needed by State Agencies to determine and impose sanctions on home health agencies that are out of compliance with one or more CoP. Effective July 1, 2014 home health agencies may be subject to both monetary penalties (up to $10,000/day) fines and non-monetary penalties (e.g. temporary management, directed in-service, directed plan of correction.) As part of this, CMS posted a new chapter, Chapter 9, to the State Operations Manual, as its guide to sanction enforcement. Agencies must know the CoP requirements or risk these major penalties or worse, closure. This is a 1-hour session for Home Health Administrators, Managers, Clinical Supervisors, Board Members, anyone ultimately responsible for the overall operations and viability of the agency cannot miss.
