    CARF accreditation decisions

    Three-Year Accreditation: The organization satisfies each of the CARF Accreditation Conditions and demonstrates substantial conformance to the standards. It is designed and operated to benefit the persons served. The organization demonstrates quality improvement from any previous periods of CARF accreditation.

    One-Year Accreditation: The organization satisfies each of the CARF Accreditation Conditions and demonstrates conformance to many of the standards. Although there are significant areas of deficiency in relation to the standards, there is evidence of the organization's capability to correct the deficiencies and commitment to progress toward their correction.

    Provisional Accreditation: Following the expiration of a One-Year Accreditation, a Provisional Accreditation is awarded to an organization that is still functioning at the level of a One-Year Accreditation. A Provisional Accreditation is awarded for a period of one year. An organization with a Provisional Accreditation must be functioning at the level of a Three-Year Accreditation at its next survey or it will receive a survey outcome of Nonaccreditation.

    Nonaccreditation: The organization has major deficiencies in several areas of the standards, and there are serious questions as to the benefits of services; there are serious questions as to the health, welfare, or safety of those served; the organization has failed over time to bring itself into substantial conformance to the standards; or the organization has failed to satisfy one or more of the CARF Accreditation Conditions.

    Preliminary Accreditation: This allows new organizations to establish demonstrated use and implementation of standards prior to the direct provision of services to persons served. There is evidence of processes and systems for service and program delivery designed to provide a reasonable likelihood that the services and programs will benefit the persons served. A full follow-up survey is conducted approximately six months following the initiation of services to persons served.

    Accreditation with stipulations: If an organization's accreditation status is displayed as having stipulations, CARF may require ongoing reporting or other action from the provider regarding its progress in maintaining conformance to the accreditation standards. Please contact the organization directly for details.

    CCRC accreditation decisions

    Five-Year Term of Accreditation: The organization satisfies each of the CARF Accreditation Conditions and demonstrates substantial conformance to the standards. It is designed and operated to benefit the persons served. Its current method of operation appears likely to be maintained and/or improved in the foreseeable future. The organization demonstrates quality improvement from any previous periods of CCRC accreditation. There is fulfillment of the annual test of conformance. At any time during the five-year term of accreditation, based on information received or information not received, CARF can proceed with conformance testing to determine ongoing conformance to the standards.

    Nonaccreditation: The organization has major deficiencies in several areas of the standards, and there are serious questions as to the benefits of services; there are serious questions as to the health, welfare, or safety of those served; the organization has failed over time to bring itself into substantial conformance to the standards; or the organization has failed to satisfy one or more of the CARF Accreditation Conditions.

    Accreditation with stipulations: If an organization's accreditation status is displayed as having stipulations, CARF may require ongoing reporting or other action from the provider regarding its progress in maintaining conformance to the accreditation standards.
