The Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) directs state health agencies or other appropriate agencies to determine if health care entities meet federal standards. This helping function is termed "provider certification." Health Facility Compliance Group staff is responsible for certifying Comprehensive Out-Patient Rehabilitation Facilities.

For more information on the certification process, refer to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Information page, or contact your zone office. See the City-Region-Zone List to find your appropriate zone office.
