In order to determine the best home care business option, it’s imperative to understand the distinction between skilled medical home health and non-medical home care. Skilled medical home health agencies (as the name implies), administer skilled and licensed nursing and rehab therapy services under physician’s orders. All services provided must comply with strict medical guidelines. Medical home health agencies require extensive licensing that may include Medicare and Medicaid certifications. The most common payment method for skilled medical home health care is third party billing sources.
On the other hand, non-medical home care business services include personal care, assistance with daily living activities, meal preparation, housekeeping, and transportation. Non-medical home care agencies provide the services needed for ensuring the safety and comfort of their clients. Private pay is the billing option for non-medical home care services.
When you start a home care business or open a home care agency, it can be a grueling process. The first step in this process is to identify what type of home care business you would like to start.
Typically, a non-medical personal care business offering personal care and companion care services would be ideal.
In most states, a non-medical business requires very little overhead to start. A personal care home care business allows you to touch your patient. This means you can bathe your patient and assist with other hands-on daily living activities.
If you’re ready to start a home care business, call and speak to any of our professional licensing specialists. They are experts in understanding your states’ licensing requirements.
A Private Duty Home Health Care Business can provide services such as skilled nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and social work. Additionally, a Private Duty Home Health Care Business may be able to provide non-medical personal and companion care services as well. The allowed services may differ according to your state.
Private Duty Home Health Care Agencies do not provide Medicare related services. Instead, their patients and billing resources will be funded by the following:
Private Duty Home Care Agencies can also provide home care aides, companion care, and homemaker services.
A skilled care Home Health Care Business will allow you to provide skilled nursing services. You will also be able to offer physical, occupational, and speech therapy services along with medical social worker services. A home health care business can achieve Medicare Accreditation. This enables your agency to bill for providing services to Medicare patients.
The process of Medicare Accreditation requires an agency to complete a three day Medicare survey. The survey is an audit of the agency’s operations and minimum of ten patient clinical records. The survey has skilled staff and capitalization requirements that aren’t applicable with a non-medical personal care home care business.
In some states, a certificate of need must be approved before an agency can become Medicare eligible.
The staggering growth of our geriatric population along with improved Medicare reimbursement guidelines have skyrocketed the need for hospice care. With our hospice business startup, it’s never been easier to obtain a hospice business license. Starting a hospice agency is not only a lucrative investment but also provides a multitude of benefits – both professional and personal.
Along with the clinical aspects of care, a hospice agency reaches out to patients and families during their most challenging moments. A hospice agency provides compassionate assistance for patients and families in need of psychosocial and spiritual support. As owner of your hospice business, you’ll provide the comfort and loving care people need during their end of life experience. Starting a hospice business enables you to improve the quality of life for people dealing with progressive, advanced, and terminal illnesses. We teach you EVERYTHING you need to build your Hospice business.
This type of intensive care requires highly developed skills. For this reason, a sustainable business model within a positive organizational culture is essential. In addition, developing an effective partnership with clients is also a critical component for your hospice business success.

Non-Emergency Transportation (NEMT) is for those who require assisted transportation from one place to another on an occasional or regular basis. It includes those who are not mobile enough to walk, drive or get in and out of public transport independently.
Non-Emergency Medical Transportation (NEMT) companies were established to fill a unique void in medical care, by enabling patients who cannot drive or do not have access to transportation to get to their appointments.
Non-Emergency Transportation is not assistance curb-to-curb but door-thru-door. The goal of non-emergency medical transportation is getting the patient, get them to the vehicle, properly secure them, and drive them to their destination, taking them to the appropriate office.

There are 2 types of accreditations available for Home care businesses. The first is for personal care/private duty home health care businesses. The major benefit of this type of accreditation are patient resource opportunities. In most cases, a home care business requires accreditation in order to work with HMO and Insurance providers. The same goes for Medicaid and mandatory requirements to work with certain hospitals. The second option is to consider Medicare accreditation. This is the most sought after type of accreditation, allowing a home health care business to bill Medicare for their services. Another added benefit is having all additional patient resource benefits associated with a Private duty type of accreditation.
