June 30, 2014

Public Citizen urges The Joint Commission to investigate whether HealthFair — or any of its partnered hospitals and health care organizations — has ever misled consumers to believe that the company and its screening programs were accredited by The Joint Commission at a time when they were not. We also asked the Commission to reject any application for accreditation from HealthFair and to suspend the accreditation of any health care organization still partnered with HealthFair.
