CareSource receives quality accreditation

Dayton-based CareSource said Wednesday it has received accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance, a two year process to ensure the Medicaid managed care company meets quality measures.

NCQA is a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that focuses on improving health care quality with measurement, transparency and accountability. The accreditation agency gave CareSource commendable status.

Ohio and other states have put an increased focus on NCQA accreditation to make sure all Medicaid plans are ranked on a standard of quality and health outcomes, CareSource said.

Approximately 930,000 Ohioans have their Medicaid plans, typically low income people and children, administered by nonprofit CareSource, the state’s largest Medicaid managed care plan.

CareSource also is accredited by URAC.
