Home care agencies are eligible for Medicaid reimbursement if they are certified as an HHA service provider by Arkansas Medicaid. States have their list of regulations, apart from the regular certification and licenses, that must be followed by an agency.
Apart from this, there are some exemptions for the agencies dealing with non-med private-duty home care services for regulations and certifications. Information is provided by the state’s Human Service Department and Bureau of Licensing and Certification.

Arkansas has a wide range of Medicaid programs for low-income individuals of all ages, including seniors, pregnant women, parents, children, blind people, disabled people, and caregivers. For individuals making less than 133% of FPL, the state has an alternate program.
The Medicaid application process for Arkansas residents is easy. Anyone can apply for the Medicaid programs by visiting Access.Arkansas.gov. A paper-based application is also accepted at the local Department of Health Services (DHS) center.
