Home Care Agencies Rules

Pursuant to GS 150B-21.3A, Periodic Review and Expiration of Existing Rules, all rules are reviewed at least every 10 years or they shall expire. As a result of the periodic review of Subchapter 10A NCAC 13J, The Licensing of Home Care Agencies, eight rules were determined as "Necessary With Substantive Public Interest," thus necessitating readoption. With input from stakeholders, substantial changes have been proposed to these rules to provide clarity and remove ambiguity, address objections from the Rules Review Commission identified in the history notes for five of the rules, and make technical changes and formatting changes. The proposed changes also include updates to the definitions to refer to North Carolina General Statutes definitions.
