Certification (Medicare-Certified) The term 'Certification (Medicare-Certified)' as it applies to the area of hospitals can be defined as 'State government agencies inspect health care providers, including hospitals, nursing homes, dialysis facilities and home health agencies, as well as other health care providers. These providers are certified if they pass inspection. Being certified is not the same as being accredited. Medicare or Medicaid only pays for care provided by certified or accredited providers'.
