Sanford Health Plan Awarded Accreditation for Commercial and Marketplace HMO
Sanford Health Plan prides itself on providing quality group health insurance and supporting wellness programs.
The NCQA Health Plan Accreditation is a voluntary review process. Surveys include rigorous on-site and off-site evaluations of over 60 standards and selected HEDIS® measures. NCQA sends a team of trained health care experts, including physicians, to conduct the survey.
According to NCQA, the standards are purposely set high to encourage health plans to continuously enhance their quality. They are intended to help organizations achieve the highest level of performance possible, reduce patient risk for untoward outcomes and create an environment of continuous improvement.
