PORTLAND, Ore. – Today Cambia Health Solutions announced that it has achieved National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Accreditation for its six regional health plans.
This accreditation is the “gold standard,” reflecting the rigorous and comprehensive independent review by NCQA on health plans, demonstrating the ability to drive improvements in four key areas: quality improvement, utilization management, member services and credentialing. NCQA evaluates how effectively a health plan manages all parts of its delivery system, including physicians, hospitals, other health care professionals and administrative services.
NCQA Accreditation provides health care consumers the ability to evaluate the quality of different health plans across a variety of important criterion. This allows individuals to make health plan decisions based on demonstrated value rather than simply on cost.
“Improving the consumer experience through service excellence, innovative products and high-quality provider networks reflects our ongoing commitment to transforming health care,” said Dr. Richard Popiel, executive vice president & chief medical officer of Cambia Health Solutions. “This achievement is due to the hard work and commitment of our employees who ensure that our members have access to the care they need, when they need it.”
NCQA Accreditation is a nationally recognized evaluation that purchasers, regulators and consumers can use to assess health plans.
