IV hydration therapy has many applications and purposes. In the most common cases, the purpose is for post-surgery recovery or wellness optimization. IV therapy businesses that want to offer a more concierge type of service by offering mobile or in-home services, need to be aware of Florida home health agency laws and regulations.
In general, Florida law requires home IV therapy providers to be licensed as a home health agency or nurse registry. There are, however, exceptions to licensure if certain licensed professionals are acting alone and within the scope of their professional license to provide care to patients in patient homes.
In addition to the home health license, business owners will likely need local business licenses as well. While each county and city has different requirements, most generally require some type of license to do business.
