Fees are based on the size of the jurisdictional population served by the health department. PHAB’s Five Tier Accreditation Fee Schedule will be published annually.
The Initial Accreditation Review Fee is based on services provided by staff, peer reviewer’s travel and training, the subscription to e-PHAB, and the accreditation coordinator’s in-person training.
The Annual Accreditation Services Fee supports the ongoing process of the health department as it goes through the accreditation lifecycle and is invoiced each year, beginning one year after the Initial Accreditation Review Fee invoice. Invoices will be provided by PHAB to the applicant health department based on the category population they serve. The Annual Accreditation Services Fee also covers the reaccreditation process so the health department does not need to concern itself with additional budget dollars at the time it is eligible for reaccreditation.
Both the Initial Accreditation Review Fee and the Annual Accreditation Services Fee published in January each year is good for the period July 1st of that year through June 30th the following year. Fees are subject to review for potential annual expense adjustments to take effect on July 1st of each year. Any changes to the fee amount will be announced in January of that same year.
