How Do Ohio Home Health Services Bonds Work? 

Home health services surety bonds protect clients by holding the service provider financially accountable for following industry regulations. The surety contract binds three parties in a legal agreement:

  1. Principal: The home health service provider that purchases the bond from the surety
  2. Surety: The company that issues the bond to the principal 
  3. Obligee: The Ohio Department of Health that requires licensees to be bonded 

If the principal acts unethically or breaks the bond terms, harmed parties can file a claim for financial reimbursement from the principal. The surety will pay out valid claims and recoup damages from the principal.
