How Our Accreditation Process Works

At URAC, we pride ourselves in offering a flexible, collaborative accreditation process. While the typical procedure can be involved, we've designed ours to be as streamlined as possible.

During the process, you'll be supported by a client relations manager who will answer your questions and guide you through each step. Also, unlike other accrediting organizations, we don't offer set plans. Instead, we tailor ours to meet your organization's specific needs and goals.

Our accreditation procedure has easier ways to upload your documentation and shorter turnaround times, so you can expect the entire process to take around four to six months.
