The healthcare industry has complex and challenging industry standards. Centene Corporation and its subsidiaries strive to not only meet but exceed these standards to provide quality healthcare to each of its members. Centene is proud to be formally recognized for going above and beyond industry standards through certifications and accreditations by some of the nation’s top healthcare organizations.

CORE Certification

Centene standardizes the information given to healthcare providers. The Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE) is an initiative by a nonprofit alliance of health plans, networks and trade associations to simplify healthcare administration. With CORE certification, Centene joins others in standardizing the information sent to providers, so they receive consistent, uniform information from each insurer. CORE certification helps providers offer the best possible care consistently to each member, which in turn helps members maintain better health. It also improves interactions between health insurers and providers, reduces costs and administrative hassles, meets HIPAA requirements, and increases accuracy and speed in paying claims. Centene has received the CAQH CORE® health plan certification seal and is exchanging electronic administrative data in compliance with the CORE rules. For more information about CORE, please visit CAQH.

 

CAQH CORE-certified organization

NCQA

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) evaluates the quality of key processes and systems health plans provide their members. NCQA is a private, nonprofit organization working to improve healthcare quality through measurement, transparency and accountability. The accreditation process involves a team of NCQA-trained healthcare experts conducting an extensive review, which includes an on-site survey of each health plan being considered for accreditation, and annual reporting of performance measures. Centene’s subsidiaries strive for this level of quality in all aspects of the business. 

Centene is proud to be recognized by the NCQA with the 2021 Innovation Award for Health Equity for our data-driven Health Equity Improvement Model for being a leading-edge strategy for improving health equity and healthcare quality through innovative and creative solutions. Centene’s four-step model features a public health framework that uses a data-driven process to help identify barriers and design custom, community-driven initiatives for members and providers. The model was successfully implemented in multiple markets across the enterprise, resulting in reductions in Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) disparities.

URAC

URAC, formerly known as the Utilization Review Accreditation Commission, is an accreditor of healthcare companies. An independent, nonprofit organization, URAC develops standards with the help of nationwide experts in healthcare, including providers, insurers, healthcare organizations and public interest groups. Many of Centene’s specialty companies are URAC certified.
