Home Health Agency Licensure

To be considered for a license to provide medical or non-medical home health service as a home health agency or nonagency provider, you must submit a completed application and a non-refundable application fee of $250.00. To submit both the application and the electronic payment, you will need to choose both the Application (PDF) and online payment link separately.  After selecting the payment link, you will need to select "No" for the question “Are you paying for an Invoice?”.


In accordance with Chapter 3740 of the Ohio Revised Code, the primary owner of a home health agency seeking to obtain a Nonmedical Home Health Services home health agency license is required to provide to the Ohio Department of Health their fingerprint impression card, not a criminal record check. You can find a location that provides fingerprinting services on the Ohio Attorney General’s Office website. You will need to contact the location to ensure that the location can provide you with a copy of your fingerprint impressions that are either inked or done electronically. The other option is to reach out to your local law enforcement agency to see if they may be able to provide you with a fingerprint impression card.
