In response to revisions to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for home health, The Joint Commission began surveying deemed status home health agencies to updated home health regulatory requirements effective January 13, 2018.

Background

As of November 7, 2017, CMS had reviewed a majority of The Joint Commission’s standards changes; these were implemented on January 13, 2018. The remaining standards changes were approved by CMS on January 12, 2018, and these will be implemented for the March 11, 2018 release. Prior to that date, The Joint Commission will use current standards to evaluate the revised Conditions of Participation.
