A Referral Agency is often referred to as a “Domestic Referral Agency”
A Referral Agency registers Professional Caregivers then refers them to families and into the homes of the aging, ill, disabled and injured. It’s a business model designed to promote total control for the client and independent professional caregivers alike.
A Referral Agency does not employ the caregivers
Because the caregivers work independently, they are not employees of the agency. This also means that the agency cannot offer bonding insurance, professional liability insurance or workers compensation insurance. Any client can request a caregiver to provide their own bonding and liability insurance. Worker’s compensation insurance can be easily engaged by the client through either a Home Owner’s Insurance policy or Renter’s insurance Policy, by getting a Rider in addition to the current coverage. The cost is usually between $80-$200 per year.
