A home care agency is considered to be eligible for Medicaid reimbursement if the agency is HHA (Home Health Agency) certified as per the state regulations.
The agencies can get detailed information about the required certifications either through the Bureau of Licensing and Certification or through the Department of Human Services.
Governing Body: Diamond State Health Plan (Plus)
Medicaid in Delaware is a wide-ranging health insurance program funded by state and federal government to provide health coverage to low-income individuals making less than 133% of the federal poverty level (FPL). The managed care program is called the Diamond State Health Plan (DSHP), and the long-term care program is called Diamond State Health Plan Plus (DSHP Plus) for seniors, pregnant women, parents, children, disabled people, and caregivers.
