Managed care organization receives distinction status
BlueCare Tennessee is the first managed care organization in the country to receive the National Committee for Quality Assurance in Long-Term Services and Supports' Distinction Status.
The distinction focuses on person-centered care planning and effective care transitions. The NCQA program lets organizations meet certain requirements such as managing care transitions, performing person-centered and comprehensive assessments and managing critical incidents.
The designation was based on the CHOICES program, administered through TennCare. The goal of the program is to promote assistance for activities of daily living and allow people to be involved in their local community.
“We are honored to be the first managed care organization in the U.S. to earn this designation,” said Amber Cambron, BlueCare Tennessee CEO. “It's a testament to the hard work and expertise of our LTSS teams. Our employees genuinely care about the people they serve, and this fact is reflected in the quality of care our members receive.”
BlueCare Tennessee also runs the new Employment and Community First CHOICES Program for those with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
