Announcing Our Featured Preferred Partner:
Kansas Home Care & Hospice Association


Formed in 1973, the Kansas Home Care & Hospice Association (KHCHA) is the leading statewide organization that represents those businesses that provide medical and/or support services in their clients’ homes. As a trade association, KHCHA has also become a primary source of information for policy makers, governmental and private sector bodies, and the public. Through its services, KHCHA strives to ensure access to quality home care and hospice services for the citizens of Kansas.

 

The business of home care and hospice can be challenging. KHCHA provides education on business and employment issues, as well as on the overwhelming amount of changes in rules and regulations impacting reimbursement and operations. Providing our agencies with the resources, education and networking opportunities to meet the challenges of running their business is our goal.

 

We represent our agencies by advocating for them on the state and national level year-round on key issues affecting home care and hospice. As a state association, we are affiliated and active in the National Association of Home Care & Hospice. KHCHA also is active in the Council of State Home Care & Hospice Associations, where a like group of state associations work together with business partners on home care and hospice initiatives mutually beneficial to all. Through these groups, advocacy is done to members of Congress, CMS and other Regulatory bodies that drive policy for our agencies and their clients.

 

Although KHCHA provides education to predominately skilled home care and hospice, we recognize that private pay, homemaker services, PT, OT, and other therapies are all part of the spectrum necessary to care for patients in their homes. We all work together to care for the people of Kansas, and to work towards lowering the cost of health care. Since Managed Medicaid (KanCare) came into Kansas, we have worked closely with our members to try to give as much information to our state legislature as possible, and we will continue to help our agencies navigate this complicated system. Once the pandemic hit in early 2020, we were educated almost daily by our national organization and business partners on the effects of the virus and passed the information along to our members. Although we had to go virtual with all of our education, we feel we have been successful this year in keeping the constant flow of important information going to our members at this crucial time.

 

Like most Americans, we know that Kansans want to age in their homes and communities - where they can maintain their independence, dignity, and time spent with family and friends. Home health and hospice services provide Kansans with the quality health care they want in the comfort of their own homes, at a price they can afford. As we make our way through this pandemic, we will continue to help our agencies navigate the ever-changing healthcare landscape in order to give their clients the best care possible. KHCHA will continue our goal of “Caring for Kansans at Home.”

Customer Service

“Everyone at ACHC helped us through uncharted waters with courtesy, promptness, and professionalism! Every encounter was and still is a positive learning experience. Thank you!"

Sarasota Medical Clinic

Educational Survey Approach

“Our Surveyor, by far, was the most thorough and informative hospice Surveyor I have worked with (including four prior Joint Commission surveys). She recognized the areas we excel in, and educated us in areas requiring improvement in a manner that was professional with the level of expertise that I would look for in a Surveyor.”

Hospice of Iredell County

Relevant Standards

"We found ACHC was the preferred choice because of their experience in specialty pharmacy, relevant standards as they relate to specialty pharmacy, and the approachability and willingness to assist Axium in our success for accreditation. ACHC exceeded Axium's expectation in the area of providing timely feedback, professional mentoring, and partnership."

AXIUM HEALTHCARE PHARMACY, INC.
