Health Net Earns NCQA Multicultural Health Care Distinction

Health Net's California HMO, POS, PPO, Healthy Families Program and Medicaid lines of business have been awarded the Multicultural Health Care (MHC) Distinction by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This national distinction recognizes organizations that lead the market in providing culturally and linguistically sensitive services, and working to reduce health care disparities.

"At Health Net, we believe that cultural competency is a critical component of a high quality health care system," said Steve Sell, president, Western Region Health Plan and president, Health Net of California. "Achieving the NCQA's Multicultural Health Care Distinction confirms and acknowledges our commitment to help make health care work for all members - from our comprehensive language assistance program to our quality improvement and medical management efforts that address health care disparities."

Health Net of California's Multicultural Health Care Distinction, which is reflected in Health Net's NCQA scorecard, is valid through January 2014. Its Medicare line of business has received the "Excellent" accreditation status from the National Committee for Quality Assurance. Health Net of California's commercial HMO/POS and PPO lines of business (offered by Health Net Life Insurance Company) and Health Net of California's Medicaid line of business have received the "Commendable" accreditation status.
