Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HSSC) requires MCOs and DMOs to achieve accreditation, so DMOs in Texas must be URAC accredited as it is the only entity offering dental plan accreditation.


URAC’s improved Dental Plan Accreditation program reduces accreditation application document uploads by more than 50%, saving considerable time by eliminating repetitive steps!

Achieving Dental Plan Accreditation from URAC signals to stakeholders—from patients and providers to potential partners—that your dental plan has fine-tuned its operations and adheres to a set of rigorous quality standards organization-wide.

The URAC Difference

URAC’s Dental Plan Accreditation provides an independent evaluation that helps your organization demonstrate compliance with industry best practices.

When URAC updated our Dental Plan Accreditation, we aligned it with our latest Health Plan revisions, shortening the accreditation timeline and incorporating industry innovations such as AI and machine learning. We also wanted to ensure that the new set of standards can work as proxy for regulatory requirements and provide organizations with a framework that will help them feel prepared to meet changing requirements.

Benefits of Accreditation

URAC Accreditation brings a dental plan many benefits in every area of their business, including:

• Elevates credibility and differentiation because this valued accreditation assures stakeholders that you organization adheres to industry best practices
• Allows an organization to become smarter and more effective by streamlining quality management processes and improving regulatory compliance
• Delivers risk management peace-of-mind with standards that prevent, protect, and manage liabilities
• Improves member satisfaction and loyalty by identifying trends and opportunities for improvement and ensuring clear communication

URAC’s approach stimulates innovation across the continuum of care through email, conference calls and web conferencing.
