 Public Notice: Expanding Opportunities for Delivery of Quality Home Health Agency Services in Maryland

The Home Health Agency (HHA) Chapter of the State Health Plan (COMAR 10.24.16) regulates the development and expansion of HHA services based on the determination by the Maryland Health Care Commission (MHCC) that consumers need a choice of high quality HHA providers. MHCC staff’s recommendations for performance-related qualifications by HHA CON applicant type are proposed in the public notice.

The purpose of this notice is to seek comments on the draft quality measures and performance requirements by the various HHA CON applicant types, which include: home health agencies, residential service agencies (RSAs), hospitals, and nursing homes. As required under COMAR 10.24.16.07, this public notice will be posted for a 30-day public comment period, ending Friday, August 20, 2021. After consideration of the comments, MHCC staff’s recommendations for final performance-related qualifications will be considered by the Commission at a public meeting.
