AAAHC Releases New Health Plan Standards for Accreditation

The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care has announced its 2013 Health Plan Standards, which describe qualities the accreditor requires from health plans and managed care organizations seeking accreditation.

The new standards comply with quality measurement reporting and other requirements of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The updated chapters include quality improvement and management; environment of care and safety; and dental health behavioral health.

The survey reviews administrative office functions and a selection of the health plan's medical care providers for how the health plan is serving patients and providers. The standards can be used with HMOs, Prepaid Health Centers, Physician Sponsored Networks, Dental Health Plans and Behavioral Health Plans.
