Programs can provide care and services in patients' homes or relatives' homes. They cannot provide services in residential facilities.
Programs must first have a Certificate of Need. The certificate proves that the program meets a public need, is run by qualified people, and is financially solvent. Once a program has this certificate, it can apply for an operating certificate. Programs must prove that they meet all safety and professional requirements.
