    Utah's Home Care Regulations & Facts

    Do you know?

    Due to the availability of home care choices, Utah is a fantastic area to age in place since it allows seniors to live comfortably at home rather than in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. The state offers robust home care services, rules, and restrictions to support its older population. The following are some typical state statutes you should be aware of:

    • A valid state license and certification from the Utah Department of Health are required for providing care to any client or resident.
    • Seniors with low incomes who qualify for Medicaid and meet certain functional criteria may get up to 60 hours of in-home personal care services per month under Utah's state Medicaid program.
    • The Aging Waiver and the New Choices Waiver help pay some of the seniors' costs of in-home care.
    • There is no state requirement for COVID-19 vaccines in Utah. However, Medicaid providers must abide by federal immunization requirements and personal protective equipment laws.
    • According to the state's communicable illness regulations, all PCA personnel in Utah who have direct client contact must get a tuberculosis test within two weeks of employment.

    CareSmartz360 home care management software and GPS-enabled technology enable Utah-based home care to meet EVV mandates and regulations laid out by the State. Additionally, the agencies can ensure that their demands for billing, care plans, and other operational requirements are met.

    The complete data that must be captured during a visit is:

    • The type of service performed

    • The full name of the individual providing the service
    • The specific date the service was provided
    • The physical address (location) where the service was provided

    The Utah state Medicaid program covers in-home personal care services as an entitlement. Utah Medicaid's Aging Waiver and New Choices Waiver programs also provide coverage for in-home care services.

    The Bureau of Licensing and Certification of the Department of Health in Utah issues licenses, conduct inspections, and enforces regulations for personal care agencies.

    This waiver aims to offer services across the state to assist senior citizens in staying in their homes or other community-based settings. To qualify for an aging waiver, a person must be 65 years or older and must need nursing facility-level care.

    People who have spent significant time in a nursing home, assisted living facility, minor health care (Type N) facility, or any Utah-licensed medical facility are eligible for New Choices Waiver Program. The program offers supportive services to enable people to reside in their own homes or in other community-based settings.
