All providers of services that require national accreditation as determined by the Secretary of DHHS must achieve and maintain national accreditation and be in good standing with their national accrediting body. Providers must submit a copy of their accreditation letter within 30 days of receipt through the Alliance accreditation portal. For providers accredited two years or more, only the official notification (e.g. letter, memorandum, certificate, etc.) from the accrediting body will need to be provided to the LME-MCO within 30 days of receipt. Providers who receive only a provisional or one-year accreditation must submit all findings of the accrediting body to the LME-MCO within 30 days of receipt. Upon review of the findings, the LME-MCO will make a determination as to whether there is a need for targeted monitoring.
Any expired accreditations must be updated immediately in order to prevent any further action.
Please note: Only providers who are required per NC DMA Clinical Coverages Policies to be nationally accredited by one of the following accrediting bodies: Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), The Council on Quality and Leadership (CQL), The Joint Commission, or Council on Accreditation (COA) are required to inform Alliance of their accreditation status. If you have any questions regarding the use of the portal please contact [email protected].
