Home Healthcare Agency License

Overview

Home healthcare agencies are licensed by the state to ensure that care is provided within the minimum health and safety standards. Through regulation and oversight, government authorities aim to protect the sick, disabled and elderly that use such services. As a home healthcare agency, your highest priority is to provide safe and beneficial service to your clients while maintaining compliance with all state and local laws. Let LicenseLogix file and maintain all of your home healthcare agency licenses.

Background

Home healthcare agencies may be licensed pursuant to state or local law. These agencies often provide nursing services, physical therapy, medical social work and home health aides inside the patient’s home. Home healthcare license applications often require details about the structure of the business and criminal background checks of the management individuals. The agency must often provide its National Provider Identification (NPI) number and proof of professional and liability insurance. License fees for home healthcare agency licenses are either a flat rate or based on the number of employees. Most licenses must be renewed annually.

Ramifications of Non-Compliance

Unlicensed agencies or agencies with lapsed licenses face high fines and serious civil consequences. In some states if an agency represents itself as properly licensed, but is not, they can be charged with fraud.
