HIP's Accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance
As a member or employer group, you want a health plan with quality and service you can count on.
NCQA Health Plan Accreditation evaluates a health plan’s ability to manage all parts of its delivery system, including the practitioners, hospitals and pharmacies in the plan’s network. NCQA also evaluates the level of customer service that the plan provides and how well the plan continuously works to improve the quality of care and services provided to its members.
EmblemHealth’s HIP product currently holds a “Commendable” NCQA accreditation status for the Commercial HMO/POS plan and the Medicare HMO plan.
“Achieving an accreditation status of Commendable from NCQA is a sign that a health plan is serious about quality,” says Margaret E. O’Kane, president of NCQA. “It is awarded to plans whose service and clinical quality meet or exceed NCQA’s rigorous requirements for consumer protection and quality improvement.”
NCQA is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of health care organizations. It also recognizes clinicians and practices in key areas of performance. NCQA is committed to providing health care quality information for consumers, purchasers, health care providers and researchers.
