Calvo’s SelectCare, underwritten by Tokio Marine Pacific Insurance, announced that its health plans have received full reaccreditation from the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
AAAHC accreditation is a nationally recognized evaluation that assesses the
quality of health care that health plans provide to their members.
To earn accreditation, AAAHC evaluates how well a health plan manages all parts of its
delivery system, which includes: Member Rights, Responsibilities and Protections, Governance, and Administrative Services.
Accreditation status provides consumers with an unprecedented ability to evaluate the quality of different health plans along a variety of important criteria and to make their health plan decisions based on demonstrated value rather than simply on cost.
“Achieving reaccreditation from AAAHC signifies our commitment to raising the
quality of the care and the services that we provide to our members” said Frank
Campillo, Health Plan Administrator. “Accreditation is awarded to plans whose
service and clinical quality meets or exceeds AAAHC’s rigorous requirements for
consumer protection and quality improvements.”
“This achievement was made possible through the dedication and efforts of our
employees and management team, our partnerships with physician and hospital
providers, and ensuring that our members have access to the appropriate care
locally or off-island when needed.” Campillo added.
The Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care, founded in 1979,
is the leader in ambulatory health care accreditation with more than 6,000
organizations accredited nationwide. AAAHC accredits a variety of organizations
including, ambulatory surgery centers, office-based surgery centers, endoscopy
centers, student health centers, military health care clinics, large medical and
dental practices, and health plans. AAAHC serves as an advocate for the
provision of high-quality health care through the development of nationally
recognized standards and through its survey and accreditation programs.
AAAHC accreditation is recognized as a symbol of quality by third-party payers,
medical organizations, liability insurance companies, state and federal agencies
and the public.
