AAAHC Medicare and Medicaid Deeming Authority Renewed by CMS – 11/27/2012
AAAHC has been granted renewal of its Medicare Deemed Status for Ambulatory Surgery Centers (ASC) through 2018 by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The AAAHC has held Deemed Status for ASCs since 1996.
ASCs accredited after undergoing the AAAHC/Medicare Deemed Status survey demonstrate to CMS that their quality of care meets or exceeds that mandated for participation in Medicare and Medicaid programs.
“We are pleased that CMS has again placed its confidence in AAAHC and in our dedication to patient satisfaction,” said John Burke, PhD, president and CEO of the AAAHC. “As the nation’s largest accrediting body for ambulatory health care organizations, we welcome this opportunity to ensure ambulatory clinics are meeting or exceeding national standards for quality care.”
