HHS/CMS RIN: 0938-AG81 Publication ID: Spring 2014 
Title: Home Health Agency Conditions of Participation (CMS-3819-P)(Rulemaking Resulting From a Section 610 Review) 
Abstract: This proposed rule would revise the existing Conditions of Participation that Home Health Agencies must meet to participate in the Medicare program. The new requirements would focus on the actual care delivered to patients by HHAs, reflect an interdisciplinary view of patient care, allow HHAs greater flexibility in meeting quality standards, and eliminate unnecessary procedural requirements. These changes are an integral part of our efforts to improve patient safety and achieve broad-based improvements in the quality of care furnished through Federal programs, while at the same time reducing procedural burdens on providers.
