Credentialing and recredentialing is an essential safety component of the healthcare system, and the NCQA seal is a widely recognized symbol. NationsHearing strictly follows industry standards for credentialing and recredentialing of participating network providers, and its operations align with state requirements. Further, NCQA Accreditation allows NationsHearing’s health plan partners to fully delegate all their credentialing responsibilities and it represents significant savings to them.
“NCQA Accreditation is an important milestone in our progression and a mark for our high standards of quality care and service,” said Allison Glueck, Esq., Chief Compliance Officer at NationsHearing. “This achievement signifies our unwavering commitment and priority of delivering best-in-class care and service to our members in helping to manage their hearing loss with the support of participating network providers across the U.S.”
“Achieving NCQA Credentialing Accreditation demonstrates that NationsHearing has the systems, process and personnel in place to conduct credentialing in accordance with the strictest quality standards," said Margaret E. O’Kane, President, NCQA.
