A six-part webinar series


Description: Beginning in November 2017, Medicare and Medicaid providers — including home health and hospice — must meet a host of new requirements designed to ensure that they have the necessary planning in place to provide safe care for their patients, regardless of what type of emergency may occur. During June 2017, the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), RBC Limited, and participating members of NAHC’s Forum of State Associations (FSA) sponsored a highly-acclaimed six-part webinar series Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid-Participating Home Health and Hospice Providers. While this series may have concluded, this valuable content is still accessible via recording at a deeply discounted rate of $399 for all members of NAHC and participating state associations. Non-members may also subscribe to the series for $599. These webinars are chock full of information that will be critical for any home health or hospice agency involved in the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Registration provides access to the recordings, slides and other valuable materials to any staff member of a registered entity to access as frequently as is needed to digest this valuable content.

Those who attend this webinar series will dramatically increase their knowledge and understanding of the new federal emergency preparedness requirements that are part of these new home health and hospice Conditions of Participation (CoP). In addition, attendees will learn how to apply the federal requirements for disaster preparedness in their home health or hospice agencies. Home health and hospice providers must act soon to ensure compliance in a timely fashion.
