Why ABC Accreditation?
The ABC accreditation process assists you in improving organizational consistency throughout your facility's operations by creating a minimum expectation for the organizational function and physical environment of your facility. Additionally, our onsite surveyors seek to provide a positive survey experience, one that is consultative and educational rather than impersonal and punitive. ABC's high standards and commitment to superior patient care make achieving accreditation with ABC a mark of exceptional quality.
Beyond reaching the highest standards in the profession, ABC accreditation also benefits your facility by reducing your risk of liability through compliance with ABC and Medicare's Supplier Standards and preparing you for potential Medicare audits.
How long does the process take?
The application approval process takes two to four weeks and we will notify you as soon as your facility has been approved for an onsite survey. Please note that your survey can occur as soon as 24 hours after your application has been processed. All first-time applicants will be surveyed within 90 days of application approval.
Once you are awarded accreditation, it can be valid for up to three years. To maintain your accreditation, you will need to submit an application for renewal along with your annual fee and be resurveyed.
