National Council, NASMHPD to Host Webinar on CMHC Conditions of Participation
Late last year, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized regulations outlining the conditions that community mental health centers must meet to participate in Medicare. The final rule applies primarily to organizations that offer partial hospitalization services under Medicare and establishes, for the first time, a broad array of service requirements and quality standards.
On Tuesday, March 4 at 2:00pm eastern, the National Council and the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors will host a webinar with the key CMS staff who wrote the final rule. The webinar will cover the details of the new conditions of participation, payment policies, and certification process.
- Date: Tuesday, March 4, 2:00-3:30pm ET
- Speakers: Mary Rossi-Coajou, Senior Nurse Consultant, Center for Clinical Standards and Quality/Clinical Standards Group, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services; Don Howard, Health Insurance Specialist, Center for Clinical Standards and Quality/Survey and Certification Group, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
