Ep 15: Is CMS changing its policy about if OT can initiate the OASIS in Home Health?

**Note: It has since been announced that the COVID-19 PHE will end on May 11, 2023 – Read more here**

There may be some confusion between CMS changing policies and the expiration of the COVID-19 public health emergency when it comes to Occupational Therapists starting home health OASIS. That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I’m answering a listener question about the policy around who can initiate the OASIS in home health.

  • What to expect when it comes to renewing the COVID-19 public health emergency.
  • Why there might be this misconception that there needs to be another discipline doing an evaluation the same day as the OT.
  • The financial and liability implications that misunderstanding this policy can have on you as a practitioner.
