Critical access hospitals (CAHs) that accept Medicare and Medicaid payments must follow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs). The CMS Critical Access Hospital Manual has seen multiple changes to regulations and interpretive guidelines. Since a hospital’s payment is based on compliance with the conditions, it is imperative hospitals make the necessary changes to remain in compliance.
The MHA Health Foundation webinar series Critical Access Hospitals Conditions of Participation: Ensuring Compliance is a five-part series that will review in detail the updated requirements and changes for CAHs. The webinars are scheduled for Jan. 17, 24, 31, Feb. 7 and 14 from 10 a.m. to noon.
Members can register for individual sessions for $195 or the full series for $780.
Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
