Need more guidance on whether a hospice needs a behavioral health license now
Please provide more direction regarding the potential of hospice agencies and licensure as a behavioral health provider.
Hospice does not need a behavioral health license. Behavioral health care is part of the Hospice delivery model and built into the policy and procedures, nursing and assessments of care. If you have further questions about this, feel free to call the Office of Medical Licensing at (602) 364-2536 or online at
