United Disabilities Services (UDS) Foundation is thrilled to announce that their Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Care Management program has received the highest accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the third time in a row.
The non-profit, committed to helping older adults, veterans, and people with disabilities lead more independent and fulfilling lives, offers services to those with a range of social and pragmatic needs, like transportation, housing, nutrition, isolation, emotional well-being, and medical problems.
NCQA is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that improves healthcare quality through accreditation and certifies a wide range of healthcare organizations promoting high-quality care and recognizing high-performing health plans and providers. Evaluated on eight standards that must be met at the highest level for policy and procedures, UDS achieved 100% in the strenuous chart audit review.
UDS was one of the first to achieve Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) Care Management accreditation from NCQA in 2017 when it was initiated. They were awarded the highest level with a full three-year time frame and then, in 2020, again awarded the full three-year accreditation. Now, in 2023, they have achieved it once more with an A+ rating.
William Kepner, the President and CEO of UDS, says, “We are delighted and proud to have once again achieved the highest accreditation from NCQA who have developed excellent standards of care. Our goal is to always provide a great customer experience and outcome, which starts with providing exceptional quality care. I am proud of our UDS support coordination team for their continuing high quality of care and support for those we serve.”
