HIP's Accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance

NCQA Health Plan

As a member and/or employer group, you want a health plan with quality and service you can count on.

“NCQA Health Plan Accreditation is a voluntary review process, a nationally recognized evaluation that purchasers, regulators and consumers can use to assess health plans. NCQA Health Plan Accreditation evaluates how well a health plan manages all parts of its delivery system, physicians, hospitals and other providers and administrative services – in order to continuously improve the quality of care and services provided to its members.” Learn more.

EmblemHealth’s HIP product currently holds an “Accredited” NCQA accreditation status for the Commercial HMO/POS plan, the Exchange, 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.”
