community-based care. CHAP is the oldest national, community-based accrediting body with more than

9,000 agencies currently accredited nationwide. Through “deeming authority” granted by the Centers

for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), CHAP has the regulatory authority to survey agencies

providing home health, hospice and home medical equipment services, to determine if they meet the

Medicare Conditions of Participation and CMS Quality Standards. CHAP’s purpose is to define and

advance the highest standards of community-based care.
