Final Hospice Conditions of Participation (CoP)
The final Hospice CoP were released by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on June 5, 2008 with an effective date of December 2, 2008. The Hospice Association of America (HAA)/National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) offered two teleconferences featuring the CMS staffers primarily responsible for the rewrite. We are now offering a series of all-day Seminars on Meeting the New Hospice CoPs throughout the country. Please see Education page for details. Registration is available on the NAHC website.
