The programs are designed to meet the accreditation needs of health plans of all sizes and populations
Washington, DC. November 17, 2021 – URAC, a leading national health care accreditor, announced today that it has launched its new and improved health plan accreditation suite to serve health plans of all sizes. The new programs give health plans a choice for their accreditation.
URAC’s health plan accreditation programs introduce contemporary concepts in areas such as artificial intelligence and machine learning. In addition, the programs address mental health parity, an area of increasing importance for patients and which has oversight from both individual state and federal governmental entities.
URAC also offers Medicaid accreditation, as well as an elective Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) program, for health plans to demonstrate their commitment to effectively and efficiently managing the needs of this special population.
“We designed these new programs with the real needs of health plans in mind,” said Jeff Carr, Vice President, Business Development URAC. “We aim to offer health plans a meaningful choice for their accreditation needs. We maintained our collaborative accreditation process while shortening the review timelines and making accreditation more affordable, all to ensure that our accreditation programs help health plans demonstrate the highest quality for members and their families.”
URAC will hold a free webinar about its new Health Plan Accreditation Programs on Wednesday, December 8 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern, where URAC leaders and health plan clients will review program improvements. Register here.
