As a CMS Deeming Authority and recognized leader in hospice accreditation, ACHC offers a collaborative survey approach designed to enhance business operations and ensure the highest quality patient care. Our Surveyors are Registered Nurses (RNs) with hospice experience who understand the unique challenges that hospice agencies face.
Developed specifically for the Medicare-certified hospice setting, ACHC’s realistic standards help providers succeed in meeting the Medicare Conditions of Participation (CoPs) and industry best practices.
ACHC currently provides hospice licensure surveys on behalf of California, Texas, Missouri, and New Mexico. In order to adhere to state licensure requirements, ACHC has developed a unique two-step process for initial licensure surveys in California, Missouri and New Mexico. The process for Texas licensure surveys is the same as our Medicare certification process.
All of the ACHC staff that we worked with before, during, and after our survey were highly professional and knowledgeable. It was a great experience."
