Patient Care

Our goal is to provide affordable, cost-effective accreditation programs for patient care facilities. As a nonprofit organization, we strive to keep our costs reasonable and operate as efficiently as possible. This allows us to keep application and renewal fees low, especially when compared with other accrediting organizations.

First-time Applicant

The total cost of accreditation depends on the services you provide and the number and/or location of your patient care facilities. The fee includes both the application and onsite survey fees. Application and survey fees are non-refundable.

  • Primary Location:  $1,825
  • Affiliate Location (maximum of 4):   $900 each location
  • Each additional service provided:   $250
  • DME (See DME explanation):  $2,000

Annual Fees

Once your facility is accredited, there is an annual fee for each location. We email and mail invoices for your annual fee along with a Contact Verification form in mid-September and they are due December 1st. If your payment is not received by December 1st, we will no longer list your facility in the ABC directory and you will be subject to a $25 late fee.

  • Primary location:  $600
  • Affiliate location:   $300

Renewing Applicants

Your accreditation is valid for up to three years. Prior to your expiration, you will need to reapply and be resurveyed. The renewal fee is based on the current services you provide and includes both the application and onsite survey fees.

  • Primary Location:   $1,225
  • Affiliate Location:  $600 ($575 for each additional location - maximum of 4 locations)
  • Each additional service provided:  $200
  • DME (See DME explanation):   $1,500
