Why choose 21st Century Health Care Consultants to help you start your Skilled Home Care Business?
Owning a Skilled Home Care Agency has many more requirements than a Home Companion Care Business or a Personal Care Agency.
At 21st Century we’ve helped over 3,000 home health agencies get started. Our staff consists of professionals who have helped set the standards in the industry. Who is better suited to help you start and run your own successful Home Health Care Agency?
Here are some of the benefits of our industry-leading Home Health Care Agency Start-up Program:
Our new Home Health Care Agency startup program begins with helping you choose the business entity that will best fit your needs (Sole proprietor, Partnership, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, C Corporation).
We then complete and file the required documentation, obtain a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS. We will also obtain a NPI number for you. We will then register your business with the Secretary of State in your state. We complete the paperwork requirements for your state license.
The recent and ongoing changes to licensing standards and regulatory requirements can make the startup process challenging. At 21st Century, we simplify the process and make it easy for you to understand. You provide us the application information, and we do the rest. Each state will have different certification requirements and processes.
This includes an in-depth description of planned operational policies, as well as the resumes and documentation of prospective employees’ professional licensing and criminal background screening. When you receive your license application in a binder it will be easy to submit to your state for approval.
Our experts handle all necessary licensing steps to establish your Medicare, Medicaid, or Private Duty Home Health Care Agency. This includes the CMS required 855a Medicare Application and civil rights package.
Our Policies and Procedures, Nursing Procedures, Patient Admission Packets, Personnel Files, Forms, Logs, In-Service Education Plans, Patient Teaching Guides, Committee Minutes, etc. are customized to meet your Home Health Care Agency’s needs.
