Home care organization; licensure; multiple locations. Provides that any licensed home care organization may establish one or more branch offices serving portions of the total geographic area served by the licensee, provided that each branch office operates under the supervision and administrative control of the licensee and that the address of each branch office is submitted to the Department of Health and included on any license issued to the licensee. The bill directs the Department of Health to issue an updated license including the address of the newly established branch office to the home care organization within 10 business days of receipt of notice that the home care organization has established the branch office. Currently, a licensed home care organization cannot establish branch offices unless the Commissioner of Health issues a license authorizing the licensee to provide services at one or more branch offices and the address of each branch office is listed on such license.
