Home Care Provider Registration

What are home care providers? Home care providers who register under the Health Council are agencies and individuals caring for persons in their homes.

Registration is for home care providers (caregivers) and agencies providing care to someone in their own home, not other care settings. In order to receive claim reimbursement from one of the government payers all providers MUST have active, approved status with the Bermuda Health Council.

Care agencies and home care providers must have an up-to-date registration and approval from the Home Care Team at the Bermuda Health Council.
