CHICAGO, March 18, 2019 — The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) today announced that NextLevel Health Partners, Inc., a Medicaid managed care company, is an accredited health plan for the company’s attention to quality practices and excellent service. The NCQA designation is a momentous achievement for the 3-year-old company, as NCQA certification recognizes health plans that are dedicated to improving care quality and that meet measurable criteria to demonstrate it.
“Although we are a small, young health care plan, quality is a primary focus—and that is why we are honored to receive accreditation from the NCQA,” says Dr. Cheryl Whitaker, Chief Executive Officer of NextLevel Health. “Over the past 16 months, we have invested heavily in building quality infrastructure and developing our capabilities in process improvement, care management, and population health.”
NCQA is a private, nonprofit organization that assesses the quality of health care that health plans provide to their members. The NCQA sets rigorous requirements for health care plans and evaluates the health plans’ management of all parts of its delivery system, ranging from hospitals to physicians to providers. NCQA accreditation provides consumers with the ability to evaluate different health plans in the market based on quality.
“We are honored to receive accreditation from the NCQA, a nationally recognized organization known for its use of quality metrics to certify health care plans,” says Dr. Dianna Grant, Chief Medical Officer of NextLevel Health Partners. “I want to congratulate our associates who worked hard to achieve this goal on behalf of our desire to deliver the highest level of member care.”
