Home care businesses are eligible for Medicaid reimbursement if they are a certified Home Health Agency (HHA). States have issued checklists regarding licensing and certification that should be considered by the home care service providers. Moreover, as per Medicaid in Alabama, some of the non-medical private-duty agencies could be offered waivers regarding certifications.
Home care agencies or startups should get the required details from their state’s Human Service Department or the Bureau of Licensing and Certification.
