To: Home Health Agencies HHA 32

From: Sue Schroeder, Director, Bureau of Quality Assurance

The purpose of this memorandum is to provide the most recent version of the administrative rule governing home health agencies. Effective October 1, 1999, minor changes were made to this rule without DHFS going through rulemaking under the Revisor of Statutes statutory authority. The changes include:

  • Changing the Chapter number prefix from HSS 133 to HFS 133.

  • Updating the Department name in the "Department" definition from the Department of Health & Social Services (DHSS) to the Department of Health & Family Services (DHFS).

  • Updating Bureau and Division names and the P.O. Box number in a note.

  • Changing the Administrative hearings office from DHFS Office of Administrative Hearings to the Department of Administration (DOA) Division of Hearings and Appeals.

Attached is a copy of DHS 133 (exit DHFS) for your records. It is also available on the internet at (exit DHFS). To order additional paper copies, contact Barb Carey [copies no longer available for sale]. If you have questions regarding rule content, please call Barb Woodford [replaced by Vicky Griffin, (414) 227-4705].
