*Also known as a “Federal Tax ID Number”, your EIN is a 9-digit number that the IRS assigns in the following format: 12-3456789. The IRS uses the number to identify taxpayers who are required to file various business tax returns. You must also use your EIN when filing a CMS (Medicare) claim. EINs are used by employers, sole proprietors, corporations, partnerships, nonprofit organizations, trusts, estates of decedents, government agencies, certain individuals, and other business entities. You should ask your business office for your facility’s EIN number.

The ACR accepts faxed, electronic, or digital signatures for accreditation applications. These will be treated as legally binding.

New facilities will be assigned a unique identification number after the online application is submitted. This number appears on all correspondence from the ACR and your online records. Please use this number on all submitted materials and to identify your facility when contacting the ACR for assistance.
