Class A-Medical Agency Policies & Procedures Package, for Class A home health agencies in Colorado, is the only instantly available digital download package of Policies & Procedures by an approved CDPHE trainer with Colorado home care agency regulations and operations experience.
As the Director for a home care company in Denver, I used to tell the staff running a home care company was like hurling down a water slide backwards with your eyes closed. It is overwhelming, exciting, exhausting, rewarding and stressful all at the same time. Whether you are starting a brand new agency or been doing it for a decade there are days when the phone never stops ringing, clients are complaining, staff are calling in, computer systems are freezing….and then a snowstorm starts to move in. And here I thought it was sunshine all the time in Colorado!!
One of the those ‘water slide’ moments for an Administrator in Colorado in creating the Policies & Procedures required by CDPHE. Class A home health agencies in Colorado are required to have a laundry list of P&Ps that help to provide direction for the overall operation of the agency. As the leader of a home care agency, with staffing issues, making sure claims are billed, ensuring payroll happens, hiring new staff, meeting new clients, marketing your business, etc., the last thing you want to do is sit down and type out 120+ pages of policies. I love writing P&Ps said no one ever!
So, you want to make sure you have Policies & Procedures for your agency that are compliant with CDPHE, but yet your valuable time is pulling you in numerous directions. The struggle is real and I’ve been there myself. I get it. I’m here to help make your life easier so you can continue to focus on your business.

This digital download contains instantly available Policies & Procedures needed for Class A home health agencies in Colorado to meet the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) requirements as stated in Chapter 26, Sections 5,6 & 7.

One of the largest sections for Class A P&Ps is regarding the Governing Body of the agency. There are multiple requirements for Governing Body in the regulations. Below is a screenshot of the included Governing Body. For Class A agencies, the regulation requiring personal care worker orientation is Ch. 26-7.1.
One of the most frequently cited deficiencies for agencies is not coordinating care and services for the same client with another health care provider. Below is a screenshot of the included External Care Coordination Policy. For Class A & B agencies, the regulation requiring coordination with external agencies is Ch. 26-6.3.
“Ok, sounds great but HOW MUCH?”
My hope is that more detail about what to expect with this P&Ps package has peaked some interest. But, as an operator of a home health agency I know you’re thinking that every dollar adds up. And to be up front and honest, all of these Policies & Procedures come directly from the state regulations. I have no doubt that if you took the time you could create P&Ps that work for your agency.
What I’m offering you is a been there, done that time savings. I’ve been in your shoes. I know what priorities are pulling you in every direction. I’ve been through stressful surveys where surveyors are asking for Policies and Procedures. And I’ve been there thinking, “I hope this policy is what they are looking for.”
Every one of these 65+ Policies & Procedures/Documents has been through either an initial or renewal agency survey in Colorado, and each one has passed. Ya, so a CDPHE surveyor has given the ok on each one of these. Does that mean that you will never ever have an issue with one of these P&Ps during survey? No. If you’ve had any experiences with survey, there is one thing for certain, all surveys and surveyors are different. They are human beings and read and interpret the rules independently.
But, wouldn’t you rather have a time tested set of P&Ps to go into battle with that have already been through the survey process. Wouldn’t you rather take the experiences of an Administrator who has had to learn the hard way at times on what surveyors are looking for?
Whether you are starting a brand new agency, a new Administrator at an existing agency or an experienced Administrator, this package can give you the been there, done that time savings and value.
Also, it is very important thing to know when purchasing this package, there is no risk to you. I’m offering a 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. If you download these P&Ps and customize these for your agency and think this has not helped you be a better Administrator and run a better and more survey ready agency, then simply email me for a full refund. That’s how confident I am that this is the best package available and that it will bring value to your business.
If you decide there is even a chance of saving yourself time, helping your agency, and decreasing the issues with CDPHE surveys, then this package is for you. I remember searching far and wide for someone who has been through it to take the time to help me get better.
Ok, now the price. Class A-Medical Agency Policies & Procedures Package is being offered at $997.
The $997 gives you instant and full access to all Class A P&Ps, as well as the bonus materials. The download is available as a Word document that is then instantly customizable for your agency. Each customizable field is highlighted to make it as quick and easy as possible. Once customized, just hit print and slide it into your Agency Licensure Binder!
When looking at the price of the package for your business, please be sure to ask:
How much will it cost you not to pass a CDPHE survey?
If you are looking to open a home care agency, it could take 30 to 90 days to get another shot to pass your initial survey if you don’t have everything in place the first time. If you are submitting documentation for a Plan of Correction and it is rejected due to a policy or procedure, you have to start the POC process all over again.
You HAVE to act today.
Class A- Medical Agency Policies & Procedures Package is only $997!
