Any caregiver agency could be eligible for Alaska Medicaid reimbursement if they are certified as an HHA. Different states follow different regulations for certification. Every state follows similar criteria including a checklist containing information about certifications and licenses. Some states may provide an exemption for certifications to home care businesses providing private-duty personal care services.
The certification requirement and detailed information can be accessed from the state’s Bureau of Licensing and Certification or the Human Service Department.
Governing Body: Alaska Medicaid
Medicaid in Alaska is a wide-ranging health care program funded by the state and federal government to provide health coverage to low-income individuals making less than 133% of the federal poverty level (FPL). The state of Alaska has various Medicaid programs for seniors, pregnant women, parents, children, disabled people, and caregivers.
