Proposed Regulation

NEWARK – The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has proposed amendments to regulations regarding health care service firms.    

The proposal effectuates P.L. 2014, c. 29. This law establishes that companion services, which are non-medical, basic supervision and socialization services, may be offered by health care service firms only.  The law also requires that health care service firms obtain accreditation from accrediting bodies recognized by the Department of Human Services and that health care service firms submit audits to the Division of Consumer Affairs every three years.

The proposed regulation, and information on how to submit a comment by October 20, 2017, can be viewed here.
