Having Trouble Keeping Up With Regulation Changes And Day-To-Day Business? See Why A Mock Survey Can Help You Get On Track Before The Real Thing!

Regulation ChangesToday, home health regulations change more than ever. Yes, the basics of regulation are still there, but showing compliance looks a lot different than it used to be. It may seem tough just running the day-to-day operations without trying to prepare for PDGM and any changes within your state. Let’s look at how to keep up with regulation changes in a meaningful way. 

Common Regulation Mistake: 

Most agencies work for the mission that is homecare. This is absolutely the number one reason any of us are here. However, you can’t forget about putting new regulations into place and keeping up with them along the way. If you do, then you can run into big time road blocks financially and legally. Make sure you know how to adequately prove compliance with a regulation. We saw this hit home with providers when face-to-face came into play. Most agencies saw ADRs deny. It wasn’t because agencies didn’t try. It was because agencies and physicians thought they were compliant only to find out it wasn’t enough. This is exactly the reason an objective eye looking at your agency makes sense.  

Why A Mock Survey: 

Agencies often hit compliance hard before survey, but then back down when it is done. If you think surveys will only come in the form of an on-site visit every third year, then you make a big mistake in running your agency. Auditing comes more frequently now than ever. Accrediting bodies make more and more return visits. CMS wants to know the agency doesn’t become lax after the survey is done. Sometimes, the site visits are yearly leading up to the next full 3-year review. This is expensive for agencies. A mock survey can keep you on the straight and narrow. It has an objective eye on your agency for everything needed to show compliance. It is much cheaper than a yearly site visitor!
