This Information Bulletin serves to advise you of three HHA items:

  1. On August 31, 2018, CMS posted HHA Interpretive Guidelines associated with the new Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for HHAs that became effective on January 13, 2018. These can be accessed at CMS: Home Health Agency (HHA) Interpretive Guidelines.
  2. The Correction Policy for OASIS allows Home Health Agencies (HHAs) to make their own key field changes. The Correction Policy can be accessed on the QIES Technical Support Office (QTSO) OASIS website: HHA Correction Policy
  3. CMS has posted OASIS questions and answers on the QIES Technical Support Office (QTSO) website: OASIS Quarterly Q & A's
