Awards and Accreditations
In 2014, Community Care received Health Utilization Management Accreditation from URAC, an independent, nonprofit health care accrediting organization dedicated to promoting health care quality through accreditation, education, and measurement. URAC developed the first accreditation standards for health utilization management, ensuring that organizations conducting utilization management follow a process that is clinically sound and respects patients’ and providers’ rights.
The URAC accreditation process demonstrates a commitment to quality services and serves as a framework to improve business processes through benchmarking organizations against nationally recognized standards. The Health Utilization Management Accreditation distinguishes organizations that demonstrate their commitment to quality and accountability.
Community Care has been awarded three-year Full Accreditation - the highest possible level - from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for Managed Behavioral Healthcare Organization. NCQA Accreditation is a voluntary review process.
NCQA is an independent, non-profit organization that assesses and reports on the quality of the nation's managed care plans. NCQA Accreditation is nationally recognized as a seal of approval.
