Health Plan Accreditation
We are committed to ensuring quality services are delivered to our members. We voluntarily submit to evaluation by the largest health plan accreditation organizations. Accreditation not only involves a rigorous review of consumer protection and quality improvement systems, but also requires health plans to submit audited data on key clinical and service measures.
Half of Amerigroup’s health plans have reached Commendable status: Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Tennessee and Texas. Achieving an accreditation status of Commendable from NCQA is a sign that a health plan is serious about quality. It is awarded to plans whose service and clinical quality meet or exceed NCQA’s rigorous requirements for consumer protection and quality improvement.
In addition, Amerigroup Nevada has received Accredited status, and our Kansas health plan received an Interim status. Our Florida plan is accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).Finally, our Louisiana health plan is accredited as a New Health Plan. NCQA's New Health Plan Accreditation Program applies to health plans that are less than 36 months old. The program is distinct from NCQA's Health Plan Accreditation Program.
