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.
Achieving 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 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.”
Earning NCQA Credentialing Accreditation is one of many initiatives underway at Amplifon, according to Tabatha Erck, EdD, MPA, Senior Vice President, Amplifon Hearing Health Care. “This is just one highlight on our path to offering a more comprehensive service model to manage the end-to-end delivery of hearing health care benefits for plans and their members.”
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.
