It’s that time again! All licensed home health agencies must submit a quarterly report by April 15 to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, otherwise non-compliant providers will be fined $5,000.
By law, agencies must report the following information based on the agency’s patient census as of September 30:
- Number of insulin-dependent diabetic patients receiving insulin injection services
- Number of patients receiving home health services from the home health agency AND a licensed hospice provider
- Total number of patients receiving home health services
- The names and license numbers of nurses (RN’s or LPN’s) whose primary job responsibility is to provide home health services to patients and received remuneration in excess of $25,000 for the three months of the quarter
Providers can submit reports anytime between April 1 and April 15. For more information and instructions for submitting the report, click here to access the AHCA website or call the HCAF office at (850) 222-8967 or the AHCA Home Care Unit at (850) 412-4403.
