Any home care business can receive reimbursements from Medicaid in Florida if the agency is a certified HHA (Home Health Agency). With each state having its regulations, it is necessarily crucial for the home care agency to ensure its eligibility before seeking reimbursement. The availability of certifications and license is mandatory in some states, and a complete checklist is provided by the specific state.
More information is provided by the respected state’s Human Service Department and Bureau of Licensing and Certification.
