Anticipating some questions you may have, we put together this brief FAQ.
MHCA membership dues continue to be based on your adjusted revenue. Adjusted revenue includes all dollars, regardless of source, obtained by your organization for all sites providing home care services; it is the gross revenue less all discounts or allowances (expected amount due from payer).
Yes. Beginning in 2018, MHCA implemented an “all or none” rule. In order for an agency to join the association, it must include all locations in its revenue calculations. This also means that employees of all sites have access to membership benefits!
A truly independently-owned and operated franchise may not be subject to the “all or none” rule. If your organization has an independent decision-making process and does not share information or resources, you are exempt from the rule. Please contact us for more information.
No. Starting this year, you no longer need to have one membership per license. But remember – revenue from all branches/licenses is included.
Yes, an individual not associated with any home care organization or potential business partner may choose to join the association as an individual member.
