Why Does Accreditation Matter?
In short: Accreditation matters because your loved one matters. Accreditation affects quality of care, reimbursement from Medicare and Medicaid, and ensures continual quality checks over time.
Accreditation is a way to earn the public’s trust by establishing a mark of excellence, thereby setting a home care organization apart from all others, and making it easy for consumers to recognize quality when choosing a home care provider

A majority of US state governments recognize Joint Commission accreditation as a condition of licensure for the receipt of Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements.
