The Moratorium on Licensed Home Care Services Agencies has Expired

November 17, 2010

Dear Interested Party:

This is to provide notification that the moratorium on licensed home care services agencies (LHCSAs) has expired. The Department is sending a letter to all entities whose applications were received prior to April 1, 2010, or received after April 1, 2010 without the required fee. The letters will provide information on next steps.

Individuals/agencies that do not have an application on file and are interested in applying for a LHCSA may access the LHCSA application form on the Department website at the following address: The application form may be downloaded from this site and includes instructions on filing the application and submitting the required $2,000 fee.

Applications will be considered received by the Department when the application fee is received. Please note the following priorities for application review.

  1. LHCSA applications received from counties selling their CHHAs; and
  2. LHCSA applications associated with new ALPs.

If you have any questions regarding this, please send an e-mail to:
