License and Registration Renewal

Home care licenses and home management registrations are renewed annually. Licensees/registrants will receive renewal information approximately 60-90 days prior to the expiration date of their licenses/registrations. If you do not receive a renewal letter within 30 days prior to your expiration date, please contact HCALP.

Home Care Licenses

Home care licenses are renewed online. Your renewal letter will have the login information you need to complete the online renewal. Complete the on-line application, print the signature page and return it with your application fee and supporting documentation (workers’ compensation certificate of insurance), as required. Alternatively, you may choose the option to upload your workers’ compensation certificate of insurance while completing your online renewal. See the Home Care Revenue Worksheet (PDF) for assistance with determining your home care revenue.

Newly licensed home care providers (temporary licensees) must be found in substantial compliance at the initial full survey before they can receive a home care license (non-temporary). Temporary licensees must inform the Department of Health within five days after beginning to provide home care services. (Please note that assisting with laundry, housekeeping, meal preparation, shopping, or other household chores and services are only considered home care services if the provider is also providing other basic home care services.)

HCBS Designation (Integrated Licensing)

Licensees with the HCBS designation will renew the designation at the same time as the home care license renewal. If you wish to drop the HCBS designation, you must notify MDH in writing prior to completing your online home care license renewal.

Home Management Registrations

Home management registrations are renewed via a paper application. We will mail you the application before your expiration date. Complete the application and return it with your application fee and supporting documentation, as required.

Newly Licensed Home Care Providers (Temporary Licensees)

Newly licensed home care providers (temporary licensees) must pass an initial full survey before they can receive a home care license (non-temporary). Temporary licensees must inform the Department of Health within five days after beginning to provide home care services. (Please note that home management services are not considered home care services.)

Once we receive notification that you are providing home care services, we will conduct an unannounced on-site survey. During and after the survey you will receive further information about any compliance issues and your license status.
