Personal Home Care Providers Re-registration

January 20, 2019

The Ministry of Health advised that Ageing and Disability Services [ADS] is conducting a re-registration of all self-employed registered Home Care Providers who registered in 2016 and 2017.

“This bi-annual registration does not apply to persons who registered in 2018,” a spokesperson said.

“Re-registration is required for providers delivering care under the HIP and FutureCare Personal Home Care Benefit, and submitting insurance claims for the care of eligible policy holders.

“Re-registration is also required for all persons providing home care benefits for clients of the Health Insurance Department, Financial Assistance and Social Insurance.

“The re-registration period will run from 1st February 2019 to 30th April 2019.

“All self- employed registered Home Care Providers who registered with ADS on or before 31st December 2017 are required to re-register using the current registration application form. Incorrect forms and incomplete applications will not be accepted.

“Application forms are available online or may be picked up in person at the Ministry of Health, Continental Building, 25 Church St., Hamilton.

“The application requirements vary by caregiver type, and are outlined in the form. If you are a home care provider and have not heard from us, please contact Ageing and Disability Services on 292-7802.”
