Who needs a form HS 215 A?
People wanting to open a hospice or a home health agency in California, need a license and must file this application together with other mandatory forms in order to obtain licensure and certification from the California Department of Public health.
What is form HS 215 A for?
Form HS215A stands for “Applicant Individual Information”. Its purpose is to provide the identifying information about a business entity and its owners to the Health and Human Service Agency. If HHSA representatives approve this form, the entity is granted a right to provide health care services. It’s worth mentioning that the whole package of forms must be approved for licensure, not just the HS215A.
Is it accompanied by other forms?
Yes, it is. You need to look up the right forms for the type of agency you are going to open. Find the checklist of requested forms here.
