Home Health Accreditation
CMS has lifted the statewide moratoria on home health agencies in Florida, Texas, Illinois, and Michigan. This means that agencies in these states can now apply for initial Medicare-Certification. ACHC can conduct your initial Medicare-Certification survey and help you start providing patient care up to two times faster than other CMS deemed accreditation organizations. View the Key Steps to Opening a Medicare-Certified Home Health Agency.
As a recognized leader in home health accreditation with CMS deeming authority, ACHC offers a collaborative survey approach designed to enhance business operations and ensure the highest quality patient care.
Developed specifically for Medicare-certified home health agencies, our realistic standards help providers succeed in meeting the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and industry best practices. Our Surveyors are Registered Nurses (RNs) with home care experience who understand the unique challenges that home health agencies face.
ACHC currently provides home health licensure surveys on behalf of California, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Texas, and Wisconsin. In order to adhere to state licensure requirements, ACHC has developed a unique two-step process for initial licensure surveys in California, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. The process for Texas licensure surveys is the same as our Medicare certification process.
