New HME/DMEPOS Standards Approved by CMS/CPI for surveys starting Jan 2022

Common-Sense Standards

CHAP Standards build operational effectiveness and compliance. Our education and resources help you provide clinical distinction and quality care. The CHAP seal and name have been a symbol of trust and quality to consumers for over 55 years.

Our Standards focus on quality care and positive outcomes for the client.

Standards are structured so that it’s easy for all HME providers, from small providers trying to fill a specific niche to a large organization with a robust product line, to use in their day-to-day activities.  Their new format simplifies the process of achieving and maintaining accreditation.

  • Easy to integrate into day-to-day practices

  • Our new format demonstrates a commitment to clear standards and expectations of evidence. This ensures the site visitor and the organization are well aware of the expectation before the survey.

  • Our standards start from quality, patient care – not policies and procedures. We don’t dictate how you provide care; our standards create the framework for you to build the operations to support the care/service you want.
