    • We complete all of the applications and paperwork needed to start your business and home health care agency

    We will setup your home care business structure on your behalf (Sole proprietor, Partnership, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, C Corporation).

    We will obtain the Federal Employer Identification Number for your home care business.

    We will obtain an NPI number for your home care business.

    We will complete all State filing requirements in your State and complete all the paperwork requirements necessary to start your home care business and obtain your State Home Care License. Some States refer to this license by different names, and some states have separate license requirements for non-medical home care and separately distinguish personal care, companion care, and similar but different non-medical home care services. We know the options and process of starting a home care business in each state, so don’t worry. WE GUARANTEE YOUR HOME CARE BUSINESS LICENSE!

    Starting a home care business, especially when there is licensure and survey required, can become a daunting task. Let us take away all the guesswork and do it for you!

    We enroll our clients in state Medicaid programs in select states, as part of our program

    • Medicare or Private Duty Enrollment, Accreditation, & Mock Survey (if applicable)

    We get our clients CHAP or ACHC Accredited and Medicare Certified, guaranteed.

    Does your home care agency need to become accredited once you are licensed? Well, it depends. Your home care license allows you to see patients, but how are you getting paid? If accreditation is preventing you from getting paid, or will prevent you from getting paid, this is the only time your home care business will need to achieve accreditation. If you are taking part in State Medicaid Programs or Managed Care Programs, they will most likely require you to be accredited, but this is not always the case, and especially not the case in most State when taking part in Medicaid Waiver Programs.

    We almost literally hold your hand through the process of Accreditation, once again, completing every form and legal document on your behalf while coaching and walking you and your team throughout the Accreditation process.

    For all clients proceeding with Medicare Accreditation, it is an absolute must that we visit you onsite to conduct a mock audit. For those clients achieving Private Duty Accreditation, preparation is provided via phone, email, or virtual meeting.

    • Home Health Care Policies and Procedures (hard copy & electronic copy) for your home care business

    This is very important. Home Health Care Policies & Procedures vary – they are not all created equal. Each State, Medicaid Program, Accrediting Body, etc. have their own set of standards to adhere to. It is important to distinguish every factor. Your home health care business will not get far if your home care policies and procedures are not customized to meet these requirements.

    We guarantee your home health care policies and procedures will meet all of the requirements necessary to provide home health care services in your State, as well as guaranteeing your State Home Health Care License and Medicare or Private Duty Accreditation should you choose to go that route. Our home health care policies and procedures are also completely customized for your home health care agency and will include all your agency specific and relevant details.

    Our home health care policies and procedures are professionally designed, edited, printed and shipped to you in hard copy and USB in Microsoft Word format.

    Home Health Care Business Development Training

    A word of caution about marketing and promises…

    We are going to build you a beautiful website that gets the job done. It’s going to look great, and you’re going to have input. We even make sure that your website is found on Google, Yahoo, Bing, and every other search engine. But please listen, as this is very important – no one can guarantee you will be on the first page of Google unless you are paying Google Ads. Do not waste money on SEO as a new agency.

    Google Places, Facebook, Google Ads, and referral sites in some markets – this is where you spend money online. The hard work and the real reward are earned face to face through grassroots, on the ground marketing to patients and referral sources. We teach this in our training.

    After researching various companies to help us start our Home Care Organization, Certified Homecare Consulting was by far the most professional and took the time to be thorough about what their process looks like. They certainly did not fall short of anything they promised and made the long and daunting experience of dealing with our states (CA) DSS licensing seem truly effortless from our end.

    Had an exceptional video call to go over policies with Mr. Haddad and to go over hiring and protocols with Ms. Thompson. Each separate meeting was absolutely needed and I left the meeting eager and ready to get going with this new journey I have just begun to start! Feeling motivated and empowered. This company has been a life saver. EVERYTHING that you can need to start a business from the ground up is provided. I have been happy with them so far and would do it all over again if given the opportunity.

    I am extremely happy with the help we’ve received from Certified Homecare Consulting for our home health agency. Susan, our clinical nurse consultant has been very helpful and goes above and beyond to make sure we understand how to properly document and in preparing us for the Medicare survey. She is always available to answer questions and is a great resource with her knowledge and experience. Starsha has been very helpful with our chart review and made sure that our files are in compliance and in the right order. Alison and Paige have also been helpful in this journey. I highly recommend CHC if starting an agency.Update 11/6/23:I want to thank Sue for all her help in helping us get our Medicare accreditation.

    Alison and the team at Certified Homecare Consulting did a FANTASTIC job helping my company get licensed in Texas. Alison was very responsive whenever I had questions, did a great job gathering all the necessary information, and handled what could have been a major roadblock to licensure in a matter of days. I highly recommend Alison and Certified Homecare Consulting and would use them again in a heartbeat!

    We had a great experience using Alison to assist us in our state Home (Non-Health) Care license. We appreciate the expertise, guidance and professional manner in which Alison and Starsha helped us. The legalities of required paperwork/binders to keep on hand would be entirely overwhelming without having the binders and policies provided and customized to our state needs. Honestly, we couldn’t have done it without them!

It is truly a pleasure working with them.

    Our agency had the pleasure to work with Certified Home Health and the entire process was a dream come true. Our agency had contracted two other consultants prior and neither were as well qualified and knowledgeable about the acquisition of a home health license in florida as Certified Home Health. Alison was our first point of contact and was amazing to work with, extremely knowledgeable, charismatic, and attentive. Tristan, Starsha, and the rest of the team were also wonderful.

I will recommend them to anyone who wants to start a home care agency. The state of Maryland makes it very difficult and they were very responsive to all of my calls and questions. Thanks again for all your hard work this is an amazing company

    CHC did a terrific job helping us understand and navigate through the process to file an application for and receive our Private Home Care Provider license with the State of Georgia. They provided us with the appropriate documents, policies, procedures, and clear guidance to complete this process in less than 90 days, which is the typical time period for the state to review and decide upon PHCP applications. We believe that we could not have obtained this license in the timeframe that we did without CHC’s help! We highly recommend that anyone needing assistance with state license applications contact CHC.

    Matters of the H.
    CHC is the best!! It’s not easy getting a home care license in NC! It is very challenging and very expensive. Without Certified Homecare Consulting we would have been completely stressed with all the paperwork that you have to fill out for State. Donna H. is a blessing and very awesome to work with. She was very through and handled all our concerns and questions. I highly recommend them!! Steve G. is also a great person who is quick to respond with any concerns you may have. We couldn’t have done this without them!! So thank you guys!!
