Maryland-National Capital Homecare Association

The Home Care Association for Maryland and D.C.

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 to the 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).

On Tuesday, May 17, 2018, Dawn Seek, Executive Director, was very honored to represent MNCHA at the signing of HB 1696 Task Force to Study Access to Home Health Care for Children and Adults with Medical Disabilities and Report on Home and Community Based Services. Thanks to Shannon Gahs of Bayada for introducing this idea and a big thank you to Del Reznik for sponsoring the bill.

Emergency Preparedness

MNCHA and the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) want home care providers and their patients to be prepared in the case of an emergency. We are partners in creating a network that receives important and timely preparedness information from the state before, during and after emergencies. The Emergency Preparedness Network is open to all.
