ERC Update: Not All Home Care Agencies are eligible

for the maximum $26,000 per employee

You don’t qualify just because the pandemic impacted your business. Your industry, state, and circumstances determine whether you qualify for this credit and for how much.

You may not qualify for the entire $26,000 per employee, but you should still consider this incentive if you experienced any of the following impacts:

  • Restrictions on facility access (hospitals, SNF, AL/IL, CCRC);
  • A decline in the patient census;
  • A decline in hours of service provided;
  • Change from in-person service to telemedicine;
  • Operational changes to the Care Plan;
  • Caregiver testing, training restrictions, and licensing delays;
  • Reduction in revenue;
  • Marketing/Sales personnel restrictions; or
  • Segment impact.
