CMS renews AAAHC deeming status
In December, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved AAAHC as a national accreditation organization for ASCs that request participation in the Medicare program. This 6-year award was based on a 12-month comprehensive review of AAAHC policies, procedures, processes, documentation, onsite record review, and survey observation evidence which recognizes that the AAAHC accreditation program continues to satisfy the Medicare Conditions for Coverage for ASCs. AAAHC has consistently held Deemed Status for ASCs since 1996.
