Accreditation

The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs published its final regulations in the NJ Register on May 21, 2018.  This means that ALL New Jersey Home Health Care Service firms, as defined by the legislation, MUST BE ACCREDITED by June of 2019 in order to  renew their licenses.

CAHC Accreditation

CAHC’s Accreditation Program is all about value; value that no other accrediting body can give you.   Whether your business model is Private Pay, Managed Care or Medicaid, CAHC will guide and mentor you every step toward your accreditation while empowering your staff with distinct competencies to sharpen your competitive edge.

CAHC is proud standing above all others with in-depth knowledge of all NJ State legislation and its rules and regulations.  We’ve earned the strongest collaborative relationships with the State Division of Consumer Affairs, State Department of Human Services, NJ Divisions of Law and Public Safety and Health as well as the NJ Board of Nursing.

Eligible Services

CAHC accredits Personal Care and In-Home Skilled Nursing Services.  The accreditation programs are independent of each other; a provider may seek accreditation for either or both services.

  • The provider must have a registered professional nurse responsible for administering the program. This RN must be in good standing with the New Jersey Board of Nursing, must hold a current license to practice in New Jersey, and must meet specific educational and experience criteria as outlined in the Commission on Accreditation for Home Care CAHC Accreditation Manual.
  • For Personal Care services accreditation, the provider must have provided services to at least one patient during the four months prior to applying. All aides must be employed by the agency and must have current certification by the New Jersey Board of Nursing. The provider pays the wages and mandated State and Federal employment taxes and required insurances.
     
  • For In-Home Skilled Nursing services accreditation, the provider must have provided service to at least one patient during the four months prior to applying. All field nurses must be employed by the agency and must have current licensure by the New Jersey Board of Nursing.
