A little more than a year later, agency staff continue to have questions about compliance with the revised Conditions of Participation. The surveyor’s guidance was published late, and because of this delay, agencies were not fined if they failed to comply with CoPs. This full-day seminar will assist the attendee with understanding Medicare standards for home health practice. Join Jennifer Gibson Osburn, who was a guest Home Health CoPs trainer for The Joint Commission in 2018, as she covers:

  • The updated Conditions of Participation standards
  • Interpretive guidelines as given to surveyors
  • Practical ways to avoid citations and financial penalties



1. The attendee will verbalize understanding of requirements for delivery of patient rights.

2. The attendee will demonstrate knowledge of assessment, care planning and coordination of care requirements.

3. The attendee will learn the rationale behind changes to QAPI requirements, and what changes the agency needs to implement in order to be compliant with regulations.

4. The attendee will demonstrate knowledge of the requirements for the organizational environment of the home health agency.



  1. Intermediate level Medicare Home Care employees
  2. This will also be a follow-up course for those that participated in the Home Health 101: Medicare Boot Camp Workshop on January 23, 2019
