The Maryland-National Capital Homecare Association (MNCHA) is the trade association for the home care sector in Maryland. We represent both non-profit and for-profit health care providers in Maryland and D.C. including:

  • Medicare-certified home health agencies,
  • Private duty agencies and registries,  
  • Home medical equipment businesses, and
  • Related businesses that provide services the to providers listed above. 

MNCHA members believe that in a time of rapidly escalating healthcare costs, patients deserve to be treated with dignity and be given a chance to receive care in their homes surrounded by their friends and loved ones. Home care reduces costs, provides quality services to patients at home, and assists family members in caring for the aged, disabled, or injured at home. This is what we advocate to our state officials, the Maryland General Assembly, and our congressional representatives. 


MNCHA collaborates with state and federal officials, particularly with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, the Maryland Health Care Commission,  and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In addition, MNCHA has a wide range of partnerships with regional healthcare organizations. 


Membership in MNCHA brings home care providers a unique opportunity to collaborate, learn through peer-to-peer sessions, attend discounted expert trainings, and have access to Federal regulatory and legislative information. MNCHA is a member of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) and the American Association for Healthcare (AAHomecare).
