Chapter He-P 800 - RESIDENTIAL CARE AND HEALTH FACILITY RULES
Part He-P 820 - INDIVIDUAL HOME CARE SERVICE PROVIDERS
Section He-P 820.02 - Scope

Universal Citation: NH Admin Rules He-P 820.02

Current through Register No. 12, March 21, 2024

(a) This part shall apply to any individual who solicits and provides personal care services or homemaker services except:

(1) Agencies that are certified by the department as other qualified agencies delivering personal care services in accordance with RSA 161-H and He-P 601;

(2) Home care service provider agencies that are licensed under He-P 822;

(3) Agencies or entities that are licensed under He-P 809;

(4) Persons providing only meal services in an individual's permanent or temporary residence;

(5) Persons furnishing or delivering home medical supplies or equipment that does not involve the provision of services beyond those necessary to deliver, set up, and monitor the proper functioning of the equipment and educate the user on its proper use;

(6) Persons who provide personal care services or homemaker services without compensation;

(7) Persons who provide personal care services or homemaker services for compensation, but who do not solicit those services;

(8) Persons who provide personal care services or homemaker services only to a family member(s); and

(9) Persons under the age of 18 who provide personal care services or homemaker services.

(b) Employees of an agency in (a) (1) -(3) above who solicit and provide personal care services or homemaker services for compensation outside the scope of their employment shall not be exempt from registration as an individual home care service provider.

(c) Because RSA 151:2, V, requires registration for an individual home care service provider to operate, and RSA 541-A:1, VIII, defines a "license" as a "form of permission required by law", even if called "registration", then requirements in RSA 151 which refer specifically to "license" or "licensing" shall also apply to the registration of individual home care service providers.
