About HCAF

The Home Care Association of Florida (HCAF) is the leading voice for home health care in Florida. Founded in 1989, we are a 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organization dedicated to empowering home health care providers to deliver exceptional care through resources, education, and advocacy.

Our membership base encompasses a diverse array of providers, spanning both for-profit and not-for-profit entities, which offer Medicare- and Medicaid-funded services, alongside private pay (licensed-only) agencies. Additionally, our Associate members provide essential products and services for the home health care provider community.

Each year, HCAF organizes approximately 75 continuing education and professional development programs designed to enhance the skills of our members and keep them informed about policy advancements and industry best practices. Among our key events is HomeCareCon, our flagship Annual Conference & Trade Show, recognized as a leading gathering within Florida's home care industry. Additionally, we host specialized educational forums such as the Home Care Warm Up and Private Care Symposium, tailored to meet the specific needs of Medicare providers and private pay providers, respectively.

HCAF's seasoned public policy team operates year-round in collaboration with Continental Strategy, a professional lobbying firm, to advance our priorities. We foster robust relationships with state and federal government officials and regulatory agencies, including the state Agency for Health Care Administration and the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Additionally, we maintain strategic partnerships with key entities such as the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, the Partnership for Quality Home Healthcare, and the Partnership for Medicaid Home-Based Care.
