COVID-19 Waiver Allowing HHAs Flexibility for OT to Open Cases – Part 1
Thursday, April 23, 2020, 2:00-3:00 pm Eastern
On April 9th, CMS announced a new blanket waiver for HHAs allowing OTs to perform initial and comprehensive assessment for all patients. This webinar provides the background and facts of the waiver, includes clarifications from CMS, dispels myths, and provides an outline of what’s next for HHAs and OTs to, in CMS’ words, “allow HH services to start sooner and free HH nurses to do more direct patient care.”
This webinar will be facilitated by Karen Vance, a leading national home care and hospice consultant with over 35 years of experience as both an occupational therapy provider, regulatory manager and a consultant. She routinely provides clinical and operations consulting services to home care and hospice agencies and helps providers establish and maintain quality management practices by providing assessment, training and consulting. Karen is widely known for her industry expertise and is sought as a speaker at national, regional, and state industry events.
