Our new Home Health Care Agency startup program begins with helping you choose the business entity that will best fit your needs (Sole proprietor, Partnership, Limited Liability Company, S Corporation, C Corporation).
We then complete and file the required documentation, obtain a Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS. We will also obtain a NPI number for you. We will then register your business with the Secretary of State in your state. We complete the paperwork requirements for your state license.
The recent and ongoing changes to licensing standards and regulatory requirements can make the startup process challenging. At 21st Century, we simplify the process and make it easy for you to understand. You provide us the application information, and we do the rest. Each state will have different certification requirements and processes.
This includes an in-depth description of planned operational policies, as well as the resumes and documentation of prospective employees’ professional licensing and criminal background screening. When you receive your license application in a binder it will be easy to submit to your state for approval.
