Indiana is one of the greatest agricultural centers in not only America, but the world. In part because of its largely rural population, Indiana centralized many licenses and regulatory functions at the state level. Entrepreneurs can expect to get most of their licenses and permits through various state agencies and enjoy relatively little regulation at the local level.
In Indiana, home Health Agencies provide medical care to patients in their homes. Services typically include nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. In many states, home hospice care falls under home health licensing. Like medical facilities, states heavily regulate home health agencies and require licenses. In some cases, county and city licenses also apply, particularly to the disposal of medical waste.
