WHAT A HOME HEALTH LICENSE IN PA ENTAILS
The Department of Health is the organization that issues licenses to home health agencies in Pennsylvania. When obtaining a PA home health care license, you agree to provide care within the guidelines established by the department’s rules and regulations. To make sure you do, it regularly makes unannounced state licensure surveys to evaluate how operations are being run.
Likewise, because Medicare pays for some home health care services, it contracts with the Department of Health to provide additional unannounced certification surveys. If your agency is Medicare-certified, it regularly and comprehensively has to assess all patients, as well as participate in the federal program called Outcome and Assessment Information Set (OASIS). This is another benefit of working with Liberty for home health agency license certification: we take the hassle out of this entire process through our health care licensing services.

Likewise, through waiver programs, many can qualify to receive it at their residence for a reduced cost of hospital stays.
