Steps to starting a home health care business

With more than 12,000 home health care agencies in the united states, this is still not enough to handle the increasing number of elderly that find themselves in need of home health care every year. And home health is not only for the elderly – think pediatrics, short term and long term disability, etc.

The first step in starting a home health care business is to make sure you know exactly what you want. Do you want to start a non-medical business or a skilled home health care business?

3. Medicare Accreditation or Private Duty Accreditation - CHAP Accreditation and ACHC Accreditation
If you want to bill Medicare you will need to become Medicare Certified by achieving accreditation. We will do this for you with CHAP or ACHC Accreditation.
