Home Health Care Business Consultants

Opportunities to start a home health care business continue to grow due to the elderly population and preference of most retired Americans to be cared for in their homes. Starting a home health care business to meet this great demand for home care and home health care services is both rewarding and profitable. Our home health care business consultants will help you start a home health care business without the franchise or royalty fees. 

In a May 7, 2012 article, USA Today News said that the home health care business is one of the top five most profitable businesses in the United States. The article also cited high owner satisfaction and nearly immediate returns on investments made in the home health care business with newer home health care businesses typically averaging 12% to 15% in net profits and an average annual revenue of $248,000. Thanks to high demand, the low overhead and respectable return on investment, home health care, specifically for senior care, is prospering. Our home health care business consultants will help to assure that your home health care business startup grows to be successful. 

A home health care business offers services to the disabled and elderly population. The home health care business will go to the patient’s home to provide home care or home health care services. Our home health care business consultants will provide home health care business training to your home health care business and staff to help understand how to market to and care for our elderly and disabled population.  

Initially, it is very important to understand the distinction between starting a home health care business versus starting a non-medical home care business. Our home health care business consultants will help you to better understand this difference and which home care business startup is right for you. Our home health care business consultants can help you start a home care business or a home health care business. 

A home health care business will administer skilled, licensed nursing and rehab therapy services under physician’s orders with strict guidelines imposed. A home health care business will require extensive home health care licensing and home health care accreditation for Private Duty or Medicare Accreditation. Our home health care business consultants will get your home health care business accrediting for CHAP Private Duty or CHAP Medicare Accreditation. Once your home health care business is CHAP Medicare Accredited your home health care business will be able to bill Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance companies.

A non-medical home care business will offer personal care and/or companion care services. A companion care business offers assistance with daily living activities, meal preparation, housekeeping and transportation.

A personal care business is similar to a companion care business, but the personal care business can also touch the client; changing diapers, bathing and performing other hands on activities. The home care businesses are vital for the elderly and disabled population to remain safe and comfortable in their homes. Private pay rather than 3rd party billing sources are the most common form of payment for non-medical home care business, although, a home care business may find opportunity billing Medicaid and other state programs as well as long term care insurance companies.

A non-medical home care business license will typically allow you to take part in Medicaid programs in your state. When a home care business license is not required CHAP Accreditation may be required to take part in Medicaid programs. CHAP Medicare Accreditation is not available to a non-medical home care business. A home care business is not able to bill Medicare as Medicare Accreditation only applies to the skilled nursing offered by a home health care business. If you do wish to bill medicare, please ask our home health care business consultants how your home health care business can achieve CHAP Medicare Accreditation. 

CHAP Medicare Accreditation

Changes to QIO Providers beginning August 1st, 2014

Ohio KEPRO  (KEPRO) was recently awarded three CMS Beneficiary and Family-Centered Care (BFCC) contracts that encompasses 34 states across the nation. 

States affected are: District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Wyoming, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently began restructuring the Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) Program to improve patient care, health outcomes, and save taxpayer resources.  This first phase of the restructuring awarded five areas of Beneficiary and Family-Centered Care (BFCC) QIO contractors to support the program’s case review and monitoring activities separate from the traditional quality improvement activities of the QIOs. 

QIOs historically have provided numerous quality improvement functions, including providing an infrastructure for national quality improvement initiatives across the continuum of care; today’s announcement highlights CMS’ efforts to restructure the QIO Program to gain efficiencies, to eliminate any perceived conflicts of interest, and to better address the needs of Medicare beneficiaries using BFCC QIOs to focus on providing patients a voice through conducting quality of care reviews, discharge and termination of service appeals, and other areas of required review in various provider settings.

KEPRO will be providing review of some or all of the professional activities of providers and practitioners in the QIO areas to Medicare beneficiaries; such reviews are for purposes of determining whether services are or were reasonable and medically necessary, whether the quality of the services meets professionally recognized standards of care, and, for inpatient services, whether the proposed services could be effectively provided more economically on an outpatient basis or in a different type of inpatient facility.  These reviews are integral to the determination whether items and services should be payable under the Medicare program.  “We are pleased and honored that CMS has selected KEPRO as the prime vendor to lead this initiative.  KEPRO has been serving as a Quality Improvement Organization for over 28 years and we are excited to continue and expand our partnership with CMS”, stated Joseph Dougher, KEPRO’s President and CEO.  

CMS and KEPRO will introduce the program changes with the beginning of its five year, 11th Statement of Work – the QIO contracts cycle – on Aug. 1, 2014. 

If you are in any of these states listed above you will need to revise your NOMNC form to include Kepro as the QIO and discard any existing forms.

The phone number you will need to list is 1-800-385-5080.

If you receive a letter from Kepro you need to respond immediately.
