The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced its recognition of Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) as a national accrediting organization for home infusion therapy suppliers through 2024.
The decision gives ACHC deeming authority to conduct surveys that meet or exceed Medicare requirements, including new reimbursement rules mandated by the 21st Century Cures Act. Beginning January 1, 2021, the act stipulates that home infusion therapy suppliers seeking Medicare reimbursement be accredited by an approved accreditor like ACHC.
"ACHC is proud to receive national recognition from CMS for our Home Infusion Accreditation program," said Susan Mills, ACHC Associate Clinical Director. "This confirms our dedication to supporting care of the highest quality as demand grows for home infusion therapy services. Our standards meet new requirements for patient care and safety, and enable providers to enhance their businesses and the services they offer."
In addition to Home Infusion Therapy, ACHC has CMS deeming authority for Home Health, Hospice, Renal Dialysis, and DMEPOS accreditation, and a Quality Management System certified to ISO 9001:2015.
ACHC develops solutions to meet the needs of healthcare providers nationwide and remains committed to offering a customized, collaborative accreditation experience trusted for over 30 years.
