WOONSOCKET, R.I. — Washington-based healthcare accrediting organization URAC has given a subsidiary of CVS Caremark case management accreditation, valid through March 1, 2016, CVS said Wednesday.
CVS said Accordant Health Services met URAC's standards, which require companies to establish processes to assess, plan and implement case management interventions.
"We are very excited to have received URAC accreditation," Accordant Health Services president Trip Hofer said. "We understand that holistically supporting individuals who have rare conditions will impact lives and healthcare spend. Accreditation from URAC is important for Accordant. It recognizes our ongoing commitment to excellence and demonstrates our passion for providing services in the highest quality manner."
Accordant provides health plans, employers and CVS Caremark PBM client members with care-management services not offered in traditional health management programs, particularly for people with rare, complex medical conditions.
