HHS Explains How Accreditors Will be EvaluatedFriday, September 14th from 2:00 to 3:00 ESTRegistration is Free The Affordable Care Act requires that Qualified Health Plans must be accredited by an HHS recognized accrediting entity in order to be eligible to be offered on an eligible Health Insurance Exchange. URAC and one other national accreditor have recently been nominated for such HHS recognition. Tara Oakman of CMS's Office of Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, which authored the HHS rules for recognizing accreditors, will outline the process and information required for HHS recognition on both Federal and State Exchanges. This includes detailed information on clinical quality measurement criteria; ability to issue accreditations by QHP product type; inclusion of network adequacy and access requirements; transparent scoring criteria; submission of a complete description of accreditation processes; and the ability to fulfill certain accreditation reporting requirements.Speakers Moderator: Michele Johnson, Federal Relations Director, URACPresenter: Tara Oakman, Program Analyst, Centers for Consumer Information and Insurance OversightREGISTER NOW
