Home Health Accreditation
CMS has lifted the state-wide 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. We pride ourselves on maintaining the lowest average disparity rate,* which ensures a consistent survey experience for all our providers.
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.
*For CMS fiscal years 2012-2015
ACHC staff is both professional and helpful. I feel as though the survey was aimed at improving overall agency functioning and patient care. We learned a lot at every point of the Accreditation. Thank you for all the help."
