Interested in providing Private Duty services and just don’t know where to start? Regulations for certified agencies are very different than regulations for Private Duty. Most administrators of Medicare-/Medicaid-certified agencies are so used to the heavily restrictive federal regulations, they just can’t wrap their brains around what does and doesn’t apply to Private Duty. Join Kristen Wheeler, HCAF’s Director of Private Duty Services, and learn all about the options you have with your current license, as well as the big differences in regulations.


  • Explain the pros and cons of providing Private Duty services with a Certified license;
  • Describe detailed information about every option currently available to providers;
  • Learn step-by-step ways of opening a licensed-only agency;
  • Discuss current U.S. Department of Labor wage and hour laws to be sure you don’t fall victim to a joint employer issue.

Meet the Speaker

Kristen Wheeler is HCAF's Director of Private Duty Services. Prior to joining HCAF, she spent more than 10 years in Private Duty home care in Florida. Initially, she launched a Private Duty department for a Medicare-certified agency, then eventually opened a licensed-only, non-clinical home health agency. Kristen has worked with HCAF since the summer of 2016.
