Conditions of Participation (CoP) Rules and Comments

In order for health care organizations to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid programs, they must meet the criteria of the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) Conditions of Participation (CoP). The CoP set standards for health and safety and aim to improve health care quality and the safety of beneficiaries. The CoPs were established shortly after enactment of the Medicare program. CMS periodically issues updates to the CoP, which go through the standard rulemaking and comment period process.
