Home Infusion Therapy Accreditation

Upcoming changes to Medicare reimbursement requirements are altering accreditation requirements for home infusion therapy suppliers. To help organizations navigate through the changes, ACHC is implementing the following timeline:

 

November 1, 2019

  • ACHC will launch its Home Infusion Therapy Accreditation Program. Standards for this accreditation meet the new Medicare requirements and are similar to standards for ACHC’s current Infusion Nursing (IRN) and Private Duty Infusion Nursing (PDIN) services.
  • A crosswalk will be posted on achc.org that details every change from the IRN and/or PDIN standards to the new Home Infusion Therapy Accreditation Standards.
  • A document will be posted on achc.org that lists each standard and an interpretation related to a specific Medicare Conditions for Coverage (CfCs). The document will provide valuable information to understanding the new Medicare regulatory requirements.

November 1, 2019, through January 31, 2020

  • Organizations renewing their IRN/PDIN accreditation can choose to renew under the new Home Infusion Therapy Accreditation Standards or the current IRN/PDIN standards.
  • ACHC strongly encourages all organizations to renew under the new Home Infusion Therapy Accreditation Standards to ensure the CfCs are met before January 1, 2021.
  • Organizations that have submitted new infusion nursing accreditation applications will be surveyed against the new standards for home infusion therapy suppliers.

 

February 1, 2020

  • All organizations seeking infusion nursing accreditation will be surveyed against the new standards for home infusion therapy suppliers.
