Health Net Earns Prestigious Commendable Accreditation Status

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Health Net, a subsidiary of Centene Corporation, has achieved national
Health Plan Accreditation with a Commendable status from the National
Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The NCQA evaluates how well a
health plan manages all parts of its delivery system – physicians,
hospitals, other providers, and administrative services in order to
continuously improve the quality of care and services provided to its
members. NCQA raised its rating from “Accredited” to “Commendable” for
two plans under the Health
Net of California, Inc.
umbrella:

  • Health Net of California, Inc.’s commercial HMO/POS health plan.
  • Health Net Life Insurance Company of California’s commercial PPO
    health plan.

“Ensuring our members are receiving comprehensive, quality healthcare is
our top priority,” said Steven Sell, president of Health Net of
California. “This rating reflects that focus and drives us daily to
transform the health of our community, one person at a time.”

Health Net serves over 3.1 million members in their commercial and
government sponsored health care plans. Through devoted efforts, Health
Net has improved health and wellness outcomes for its members by:

  • Increasing awareness of breast, cervical, and colorectal screenings
  • Providing members with online resources to assist with depression,
    anxiety, and chronic pain
  • Sharing best practices on opioid and back pain issues in a statewide
    forum
  • Pharmacists calling members and reminding them to take their medicine
    as scheduled

“Achieving an accreditation status of Commendable from NCQA is a sign
that a health plan is serious about quality,” said Margaret E. O’Kane,
NCQA president. “It is awarded to plans whose service and clinical
quality meet or exceed NCQA’s rigorous requirements for consumer
protection and quality improvement.” NCQA Health Plan Accreditation is a
nationally recognized evaluation that purchasers, regulators and
consumers can use to assess health plans.
