DOH Issues Administrative Amendment Process for LHCSAs

On Feb. 15th, the Department of Health (DOH), Division of Home and Community Based Services (DHCBS) announced an updated procedure for Administrative Amendment requests for Licensed Home Care Services Agencies (LHCSAs). DOH issued a Dear Administrator Letter (DAL) setting forth the requirements for such requests.

The new procedure will be effective on Feb. 15th and cover the following types of requests:

  • Deleting or Adding a Service
  • Deleting or Adding a County
  • Adding an Additional Site
  • Closing a Site/License Surrender
  • Change of Address of Agency and/or Operator
  • Change of Legal Entity (Corporate) Name, Change of Assumed Name (d/b/a), or New Assumed Name (d/b/a) 

License Reprint Attachment A (LHCSA Licensure Amendment Request Checklist) contains the list of required documents by transaction type that must be submitted to receive consideration.

An agency must submit a written request by email to the appropriate regional office and to LHCSA@health.ny.gov with the checklist and all required documents as attachments. Incomplete requests cannot be processed.

Additionally, the DOH website has been updated to include the above procedural instructions, checklists, and other information needed to submit an Administrative Amendment.

If you have any questions, please email DOH at LHCSA@health.ny.gov or call 518-408-1638.
