The Lone Star Republic stands proudly in favor of business. Texas makes licensing easy. Most regulatory areas are centralized at the state-level where applicants enjoy simple forms and relatively few of them. Most cities don't have general business licenses and require few specialty permits compared to other major cities. Overall, starting a business in Texas is easy -- and with low tax rates, Texas strives to seduce entrepreneurs into furthering its large economy.
In Texas, home Health Agencies provide medical care to patients in their homes. Services typically include nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. In many states, home hospice care falls under home health licensing. Like medical facilities, states heavily regulate home health agencies and require licenses. In some cases, county and city licenses also apply, particularly to the disposal of medical waste.
