As a business that contracts with independent home health aides, you would typically pay them hourly or per visit rather than as salaried employees. You may negotiate a fee per hour or per visit with each independent contractor and pay them accordingly.

It’s important to keep accurate records of the hours worked by each independent contractor and to ensure that you pay them on time, in accordance with your agreed-upon payment terms. You may use a payroll system or accounting software to manage payments and keep track of expenses related to independent contractors.

Additionally, it’s crucial to ensure that you comply with all applicable tax and employment laws when paying independent contractors. Independent contractors are responsible for paying their own taxes, and you may be required to file 1099 forms with the IRS to report payments made to them. Be sure to consult with a tax professional or legal expert to ensure that you are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
