Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
Effective February 4th, 2013, The Accreditation Commission for Health Care, Inc.(ACHC) will offer a variety of payment options to providers seeking accreditation for DMEPOS, Pharmacy, and Sleep Lab services. ACHC will continue to require a standard $1,500 deposit with the application, which is a payment toward the overall accreditation balance. However, providers will now have the opportunity to pay the remaining balance utilizing one of three flexible payment options. All payment options will be made available on the ACHC Agreement for Accreditation Services.
Organizations seeking accreditation will retain the option of the current payment schedule employed by ACHC, which allows providers to pay their remaining balance, in full, within 30 days of signing the contract. ACHC has added two new payment options, which offer providers the choice of paying monthly installments toward their accreditation fee within 18 months of signing the ACHC Agreement for Accreditation Services. Providers that choose to follow this structure will be able to make either (18) eighteen monthly or (6) six payments every (3) three months until their accreditation balance is cleared.
Tim Safley, Director of DMEPOS, Pharmacy, and Sleep stated, “ACHC is aware that the success of our healthcare providers is heavily dependent on cash flow and that is why we have chosen to offer organizations the ability to pay in installments. Through extending our flexibility to offer payment options, providers will be able to choose a payment structure that best suits their business.”
