Department of Health—Home Care Agencies and Home Care Registries; Regulation No. 10-184 (#2623)

 On August 6, 2007, the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (Commission) received this proposed regulation from the Department of Health (Department). This rulemaking amends 28 Pa. Code Chapter 611. The proposed regulation was published in the August 11, 2007 Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day public comment period. The final-form regulation was submitted to the Commission on August 24, 2009.

 This final-form rulemaking implements certain provisions of Act 69 of 2006, which require the Department to license home care agencies and home care registries.

 We have determined this regulation is consistent with the statutory authority of the Department (35 P. S. § 448.803(1)) and the intention of the General Assembly. Having considered all of the other criteria of the Regulatory Review Act, we find promulgation of this regulation is in the public interest.

By Order of the Commission:

 This regulation is approved.
