Private Duty Accreditation

As a recognized leader in Private Duty Accreditation, ACHC offers a collaborative survey approach designed to enhance business operations and promote the highest-quality patient care. Our Surveyors are Registered Nurses (RNs) with home care experience who understand the unique home care landscape.


ACHC Private Duty standards were developed specifically for hourly or shift home care providers who receive reimbursement from various payors, including private pay, third-party payors, and Medicaid, but not from Medicare.


Virtual Surveys Available

ACHC offers virtual accreditation surveys for private duty providers, giving organizations a safe, convenient, and efficient way to meet regulatory requirements as uncertainties remain during the COVID-19 pandemic.


Initial and renewal accreditation virtual surveys are currently available in all states except California, Indiana, Ohio, and Texas. Florida providers can choose to have a virtual accreditation survey, but if an agency offers private duty nursing services, the virtual survey must be unannounced.


Where permitted, ACHC can conduct virtual surveys for state licensure.

ACHC virtual surveys are conducted by our industry-expert Surveyors and cover the same scope, quality, and review of standards as on-site surveys. We have successfully conducted numerous virtual surveys and will work with you to quickly meet your accreditation needs.


To determine if a virtual survey is best for you, contact your Account Advisor, email, or call (855) 937-2242, ext. 457.
