If you get to our site, we bet you are looking for information to start your home care agency or to grow the one you have. Welcome and feel free to contact us for any question. Here, I will very quick cover some FAQ we have been getting and hope they will resonate to your quests and make your searches easy:
What is a home care agency?
Home care agency means a private or public organization that provides home care services in a place of temporary or permanent residence used as an individual’s home.
What is the difference between certified and non-certified?
A certified agency has approval by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to receive Medicare reimbursement for home health services provided to Home Care Quality Committee March 2013 Page 2 individuals. A non-certified agency may enroll to receive Medicaid reimbursement through the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) for services other than certified home health. Certified and non-certified agencies may seek reimbursement through other funding sources (i.e. private pay, Department of Social Services).
Do I need to complete special training to obtain a home care license?
Yes, if you cannot demonstrate to DHSR that you have ever owned or operated a home care agency a license cannot be issued until you have received training approved by DHSR as set out in the NC Rules Governing the Licensure of Home Care Agencies 10A NCAC 13J.0903a Application For and Issuance of License
