Fees for Evaluation and Accreditation
Fees charged for the accreditation of programs are assessed annually by the ACGME. The following fee schedule is effective for 2017:
The fee for processing applications for programs seeking Initial Accreditation and for programs seeking re-accreditation following any Withdrawal status is $6,200. This fee is normally invoiced at the time the application is received.
All ACGME invoices are mailed to the attention of the sponsoring institution’s designated institutional official (DIO) on file in the Accreditation Data System (ADS).
All accredited programs are assessed an annual accreditation fee on a per-program basis. This annual fee is $4,300 for programs with five or fewer residents and $5,200 for programs with more than five residents. This annual fee is billed January 1 of each year.
The fee for an appeal of an accreditation or recognition decision is $10,000. There is an additional cost for the expenses of the Appeals Panel members and associated administrative costs. This additional expense is shared equally by the appellant and the ACGME.
All ACGME invoices are due within 60 days. There is a 1.5% finance charge assessed for late payment of fees.
Canceled Site Visit Fee
The fee for cancellation of a previously scheduled site visit is $3,200, which may be waived at the discretion of the Senior Vice President, Field Activities.
