  • (1888PressRelease) October 14, 2011 - ORLANDO, Fla. - Med Advantage, an industry-leading Credentials Verification Organization (CVO), announced its ninth (9) newly earned two-year National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification. After rigorous on- and off-site evaluations, the company knocked it out of the park on August 30, 2011, receiving 10 out of the 10 verification services.

    With self-proclaimed "demanding" requirements, NCQA scrutinizes CVOs every two (2) years in areas including license to practice, hospital privileges, DEA/CDS registration, board certification/residency completion/medical school graduation, malpractice insurance, malpractice claims history, applications processing, NPDB query, sanctions against license and Medicare/Medicaid sanctions. Only the cream of the crop earns certification in all ten categories.

    Certification by NCQA represents a CVO's commitment to excellence and quality in its work-the very standards founder and CEO John Barrett says the company was built on.

    "At Med Advantage we have always strived to provide our customers with the highest level of service with a strong emphasis on efficiency and accuracy," Barrett said. "This re-certification solidifies the work we do here every day."

    Med Advantage has provided cost-effective credentialing solutions since its birth in 1993, including secure credentialing and data verification services to Fortune 500 companies, national HMOs and locally-owned managed care organizations for board certifications, criminal backgrounds, education, licenses, malpractice, privileges, references, sanctions and work history.

    NCQA is a not-for-profit organization with a passion and devotion to improving health care through conducting quality audits of credentials verification organizations, managed care plans, managed behavioral health care organizations and physicians organizations. Since 1990, consumers and employers have equated its seal with high standards of quality and performance.
