Little Rock, Ark. (June 28, 2016) — Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Health Advantage have received full health plan reaccreditation from URAC, a Washington, D.C.-based healthcare accrediting organization that establishes quality standards for the healthcare industry.
Both companies received three-year health plan accreditations from URAC initially in 2013. Upon completion of the 2016 application and audit, the companies received full reaccreditation.
URAC’s health plan accreditation standards require a comprehensive review of an organization’s operations. There are five sections in the health plan standards: network management, quality improvement, credentialing, member protection and utilization management. Companies must pass reviews of all of these sections to receive accreditation.
Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield is an Independent Licensee of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and is licensed to offer health plans in all 75 counties of Arkansas.
