Joint Commission freezes accreditation fees

The Joint Commission will not raise accreditation fees for hospitals in 2023, the accrediting body told Becker's Dec. 21. 

The decision was made to support hospitals and health systems as they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to weather unprecedented financial challenges. In some cases, the surveys will be conducted for less than what it costs to conduct them, according to The Joint Commission. 

"As with so many other organizations around the globe, we are encountering inflation in several areas of our business and are identifying areas to lower business costs. However, The Joint Commission is steadfast in our decision not to raise fees to support our accredited hospitals and health systems," the group said in a statement.
