ACHC’s Transition Program was created to provide currently accredited DMEPOS and Pharmacy organizations the opportunity to switch to ACHC accreditation, regardless of where they are in their current cycle. In fact, many providers have realized greater benefits by transitioning with more than one year remaining until renewal. The entire process has been streamlined to make the transition as seamless and efficient as possible. This process consists of a few easy steps:
The first step is to complete and submit the transition application to the Transition Coordinator via fax or mail. Be sure to include the required documentation and a $500 deposit (applied to your renewal fees).
Next, ACHC will review the submitted documents, and the Transition Coordinator will contact your organization to determine the next steps and provide an agreement for accreditation services. Additional requirements may be necessary based on the submitted information.
Once the review process is complete, and all required documentation has been received, the Transition Coordinator will send your accreditation certificate and the transition approval letter. The agency is now operating under ACHC accreditation and appears on the weekly reports to CMS.
When you choose to transition, ACHC will handle the conversion of your agency’s policies and procedures to align with the standards. The entire process has been created to provide a collaborative and educational experience for the provider.
