On Thursday, January 26, 2012, the New York State Department of Health, Division of Home and Community Based Services, issued a Request for Applications (RFA) for organizations interested in becoming established as a certified home health agency (CHHA), pursuant to recently adopted regulations at 10 NYCRR Section 760.5(l).

The RFA is available on the DOH Website.

Questions are due February 3, 2012. Applications are due March 9, 2012.

Submitted RFAs will be scored competitively based on demonstrated need, ability to coordinate care, advancement of the goals of the Medicaid Redesign Team, among other criteria.  There is no date by which the Department will complete its review of submitted applications, although the Department has stated its intention to proceed on a timely basis.
