Amplifon Hearing Health Care has earned accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the credentialing and recredentialing of hearing health care providers in the Amplifon network. This accredited status is effective May 8, 2020, through May 8, 2023.
Our collaborative effort to achieve NCQA Credentialing Accreditation demonstrates Amplifon has the systems, process and personnel in place to conduct credentialing in accordance with the strictest quality standards, ultimately supporting optimal hearing health care for patients who are served by providers like you in the Amplifon network.
In awarding its Credentialing Accreditation, NCQA conducted a rigorous review process of Amplifon that focused on several key areas, including internal quality improvement, appropriateness of agreements and collaboration with clients, peer review process, credential verification and monitoring of sanctions and complaints.
“Amplifon health insurance partners count on us to ensure the highest standards of care for their members,” says Marc C. Lundeberg, Executive Vice President, Amplifon Americas. “Credentialing Accreditation by NCQA provides an exceptionally strong indicator of our commitment to this goal.”
When health insurance companies and employer groups evaluate potential hearing health care partners, one of the increasingly important focal points is Accreditation. Driving this trend, in large part, are health insurers and employer groups that must satisfy the demands of regulators and payers (i.e. Medicare) to demonstrate quality of care. The NCQA Accreditation validates the quality of our network, which is YOU, to health plans and employer groups allowing us to gain new contracts and grow our referral base.
Earning NCQA Credentialing Accreditation required an intensive effort by the entire Amplifon team, according to Tabatha Erck, EdD, MPA, Senior Vice President, Amplifon Hearing Health Care. “I also want to recognize and thank the hearing health care providers in our network. Without their cooperation and contributions, we could not have reached this important milestone.”
NCQA is an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to assessing and reporting on the quality of managed care plans, managed behavioral health care organizations, preferred provider organizations, new health plans, physician organizations, credentials verification organizations, disease management programs and other health-related programs.
