LHCSA RFO Unlikely to be Issued Until 2022

The Department of Health has recently indicated that it will not be issuing the LHCSA RFO until 2022, and also until after the CDPAP RFO has been finalized. The Department’s representatives have stated that they will seek to learn from the CDPAP RFO process and incorporate any valuable insights into their roll-out of the LHCSA RFO. And while the desire of the DOH to consolidate the home care marketplace and reduce the number of LHCSAs remains strong, efforts from providers and their advocacy groups continue. We expect to see a strong push in the Legislature for the repeal of the LHCSA RFO.
