Accreditation. Simplified. Choose to be Exemplary. The Compliance Team

DMEPOS and pharmacy providers count on The Compliance Team to save time and money. 

Company Background

-Delivering Exemplary Provider° Recognition for Over 25 Years

The Compliance Team, Inc. (TCT) was founded in 1994 with the fundamental philosophy that accreditation should not be difficult or costly to achieve. It is a philosophy that providers immediately embrace when they start working with TCT and see how we eliminate the “minutiae.” We took over 120 pages (“one size fits all”) of standards and comprehensively streamlined them into just 29 pages. Who has the time to dig through almost 100 additional pages? Better yet, why would you? Simplification does not mean compromising quality. The fact is our patient-centric standards are what set us apart and deliver on our promise to every DMEPOS and Pharmacy provider: Accreditation. Simplified. While others will proclaim to be the “gold standard,” the Exemplary Provider Accreditation from TCT is a true designation that your facility delivers the very best in care to your patients. Our providers choose to be exemplary.

Product Overview

-Simplified Approach. Team Commitment to YOU.

The TCT approach is superior, but it is our team that truly makes the difference. The accreditation experience is often “deemed” laborious with the institutionalized accreditation organizations that insist on a one size fits all approach. Our commitment to service is personal, genuine, and tailored to your facility’s needs. 

For over 25 years our team of full-time advisors has worked closely with providers to ensure that they are getting the insights and preparation they need to plan for accreditation or, in many cases, accreditation renewal. Our advisors are expert evaluators who are trained and equipped to save you time and money. It is a personal level of service and care that is unmatched in the industry.

The Compliance Team Difference From Start to Finish

• Free policy and procedures templates.

• Self-assessment checklists to help you attain and retain your accreditation status.

• Live and recorded webinars, making the accreditation process flow more smoothly.

Innovation That Leads the Way
The Compliance Team has been awarded the New HMEB Business Services award of the Year for three consecutive years for our commitment to developing programs and certifications that address the growing demands and needs of providers. Our immunization program has been updated to support the COVID-19 CDC requirements for both pharmacy network administrators as well as independent pharmacies. 

Integrated DME With Pharmacy Accreditation
Most pharmacies, whether chain or independent, maintain a part B DME PTAN, allowing them to bill Medicare DMEPOS. To do that, accreditation is mandated. TCT recognizes the efforts that providers take to prepare for accreditation, and in maintaining our simplified approach, combines the DMEPOS requirements into our community pharmacy program. By accrediting your entire pharmacy and all the products and services you provide, it sets your pharmacy apart from the competition giving referral sources sound mind. Lastly, accreditation of your core pharmacy is a pathway to documenting Star-Ratings data to your plans.

“The Compliance Team’s comprehensive community pharmacy program provides us with tools to help strengthen our daily commitment to excellence. They took us to a new level by customizing their simplified program to fit within our already existing quality standards. Our Exemplary Provider status validates and solidifies our role as a regional leader in health care.”— Bill Ladwig, Senior Vice President of Professional Services, Lewis Drugs, Sioux Falls, SD (57 locations throughout South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota
