The New York State Department of Health sets standards and regulates various types of agencies that provide health- or medically-related services to people in their homes. These agencies require a license issued by the Department of Health.
Searching this Web site will show results for Certified Home Health Agencies, Long Term Home Health Care Programs, Hospice Care providers, and Licensed Home Care Services Agencies. Where we have the data, you may also choose to compare the quality of services provided.
If you are a member of a managed care plan, you may want to contact your plan to obtain information on what specific home care agencies and/or hospice programs may be included in the plan's network of participating providers.
