How to start your own home health agency: there’s more to it than just money
Have you ever thought of opening your own home health agency? If your answer to this question is yes, then here you can find important information on everything you have to do when you want to start such a business.
- Putting the basis of a home health agency: name, account, headquarters
The first step, as with other businesses, is to do everything that is required in the area where you live for registering your business. Here we can include things such as: register the name or opening a bank account.
After you successfully completed this step, you must now find an area where your business can prosper. In this case you should look for areas where the number of senior citizens is higher. You can also check for areas that have adult day care, and also retirement centers.
- Hiring home care specialists and applying for reimbursement
Furthermore, you need to hire some employees so you can get the business started. The requirements you have to meet in order to qualify for this may differ from country to country. After successfully obtaining a license you need to hire some employees.
You can do that by using the services of professional companies that deal with recruitment. But since more and more people (even those living in areas such as Palm Beach, Delray Beach, or Boca Raton), are looking for jobs online, you can post an advertisement on profile web sites.
Last but not least, you should apply for Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement. In order to qualify for this, besides having to be bonded, you also need additional qualification. After you obtain such reimbursement, Medicare delegates will constantly inspect your agency to see whether or not you comply with the health and safety regulations that apply where you settled your company.
