URAC Government Relations

What We Do

Our Government Relations team works closely with state and federal officials, to build policy, assess quality of care, that is paid for and what is regulated, and identifying opportunities for improvement.

These government agencies utilize URAC programs, like Health Plan Accreditation, Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification as tools to help increase oversight responsibilities and regulated patient outcomes.

URAC, also shares our expertise with health care stakeholders across the industry and partner with consumer groups and organizations to support and shape policy to improve health care for all.
