SEATTLE – Today BridgeSpan Health announced that it has achieved National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Accreditation for its health plan offerings.
This accreditation reflects an independent review by NCQA on a health plan’s “gold standard” performance and 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.
“BridgeSpan is committed to transforming health care and we do this by providing excellent customer service, offering innovative products, and high-quality provider networks,” said Chris Blanton, president of BridgeSpan Health. “We owe this achievement to the hard work of our employees who work every day to ensure people have access to high-quality, affordable care.”
NCQA Accreditation is a nationally recognized evaluation that purchasers, regulators and consumers can use to assess health plans.
