CMS announced it has renewed the approval of The Joint Commission’s deeming authority for the accreditation of hospitals that want to participate in the Medicare program.

The designation means that Joint Commission-accredited hospitals may request to be surveyed by The Joint Commission for compliance with the Medicare quality and safety requirements. The Joint Commission has accredited hospitals for more than 60 years.
