Learn how to take the first step in CHAP's accreditation process.

How to Apply

Your application is the first step in our accreditation process. The entire process is easy to navigate with the help of CHAP LinQ.

Before you begin your application, be sure you qualify for accreditation:

  • You may need to have the applicable service licenses, as required by your state.
  • You must have an employer ID number (EIN).
  • You must have a National Provider Number (NPI).
  • You should offer services that CHAP accredits: home health, hospice, home medical equipment, private duty, pharmacy, infusion therapy nursing and public health.
  • If your organization provides services under an emerging model of health care that doesn't exactly match those listed above, give us a call or send us an email to learn more about how we may be able to help.
