Local boards are hereby authorized to enter into written
agreements with the department for the purpose of rendering home
health services to persons within their respective counties and
municipalities. Such agreements shall provide for the
maintenance of standards established by the department for home
health services by the local boards and for such supervision by
the department as is deemed necessary to implement an effective
program of home health services on the part of the local boards.
Whenever any local board has entered into an agreement with
the department as is herein provided, it may render such home
health services as are authorized by this article and for that
purpose may charge fees and expend moneys to the same extent as
this article authorizes for the department. Any local board may
render such service anywhere within the area which it serves.
