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.


Licensure Surveys

ACHC currently provides hospice licensure surveys on behalf of California, 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, Missouri, New Mexico, and Wisconsin. The process for Texas licensure surveys is the same as our Medicare certification process.

Non-Deemed Virtual Surveys

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."
