Amplifon Hearing Health Care, a hearing benefit solutions company, announced that it has earned accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the credentialing and re-credentialing of hearing health care providers in the Amplifon network. This accredited status is effective May 8, 2020 through May 8, 2023.
Achieving NCQA credentialing accreditation demonstrates Amplifon “has the systems, process, and personnel in place to conduct credentialing in accordance with the strictest quality standards, ultimately supporting optimal hearing health care for patients who are served by providers in the Amplifon network,” according to the company’s announcement.
In awarding its credentialing accreditation, NCQA conducted a review process of Amplifon that focused on several key areas, including internal quality improvement, appropriateness of agreements and collaboration with clients, peer review process, credential verification, and monitoring of sanctions and complaints.
“Amplifon health insurance partners count on us to ensure the highest standards of care for their members,” said Marc C. Lundeberg, Executive Vice President, Amplifon Americas. “Credentialing accreditation by NCQA provides an exceptionally strong indicator of our commitment to this goal. This is just one highlight on our path to offering a more comprehensive service model to manage the end-to-end delivery of hearing health care benefits for plans and their members.”
