Vitality Care Support Agency – Questions to Ask a Home Care Agency
All home care agency counselors and therapists have to meet federal guidelines that state that they are licensed and certified to practice the services they provide. If an agency makes inaccurate or false information on the application for reimbursement they must reimburse the client for their services. Failure to do so may result in the denial of the patient receiving the appropriate reimbursement.
The agency is required to provide its clients with written copies of their service contract and any documentation that support the agency’s services, including referrals and other information the agency provides. Home care agencies are not allowed to submit false information when applying for reimbursement from the government. When a home care agency takes on a client, they are bound to provide them with ongoing care until the contract is fulfilled, which is usually six months. They can’t refuse to provide ongoing care because a client has not signed up for the services.
