Medicaid for Home Care in Utah

Medicaid Certified Home Care Agency in Utah

If a homecare agency needs to claim Utah Medicaid, they must be certified as HHA (Home Health Agency). It is important for the agencies to check the guidelines provided by the state’s Department of Human Services or Bureau of Licensing and Certification so that they can be sure about their eligibility. There are some relaxations for certifications in some states, but generally, agencies must be certified and licensed.
