Home Care Specialist – Compliance
(HCS-C) Certification

BMSC has developed the Home Care Specialist – Compliance (HCS-C) credential for home care professionals skilled in establishing, implementing, and monitoring a home health agency’s compliance program, specifically with state and federal regulations related to agency operations. Successful HCS-C candidates will possess expertise in understanding and implementation of written policies, procedures and standards of conduct, understanding the 7 elements of a compliance program, ability to administer standards through nationally recognized disciplinary guidelines, and knowledge of the OIG’s standards.

HCS-C certified specialists are considered leaders in the industry because they:

  • Administer Medicare regulations governing care delivery to beneficiaries
  • Implement and communicate the elements of an effective compliance program
  • Ensure that the program meets OIG standards in supporting  the agency’s mission of  delivering quality patient care and outreach to the community
  • Provide direction and training to less experienced staff
  • Monitor and audit an agency’s adherence to the program
