CMS renews HFAP deeming authority

The Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP) has received its continued status as an accrediting organization for hospitals through CMS. The notification was posted in the August 28 Federal Register and goes into effect September 25, 2013.

Accrediting organizations must reapply for deeming authority at least every six years. This decision provides HFAP with deeming authority through September 25, 2019.
