This webinar is designed to focus on the new Conditions of Participation (COP) for Home Health Agencies participating in the Medicare and Medicaid Programs that become effective on January 13, 2018.  Participants will hear from the in-house counsel of a large home health provider and a regulatory affairs expert.
