Molina Healthcare, Inc. today declared that the widely honored National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has granted the Multicultural Health Care Distinction to Molina Healthcare’s health plans in the state of California, Florida, Illinois, Michigan, New Mexico, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wisconsin. Each health plan will gain accreditation for their Medicaid and Marketplace products, with the exception of South Carolina and Illinois. The South Carolina and Illinois health policies don’t participate in the Health Insurance Marketplace and will get accreditation for their Medicaid health plans only.
“The prevalence of racial and ethnic disparities has been a barrier to making better the quality of health care of various many Americans for too long,” stated NCQA President Margaret E. O’Kane. “Organizations acquiring Multicultural Health Care Distinction are leaders in closing this gap, and NCQA commends them for their dedication.”
The Multicultural Health Care program evaluates how well an agency complies with the standards for the following places: collection of race/ethnicity and language data, provision of language assistance, cultural responsiveness, quality improvement of culturally and linguistically appropriate services, and reduction of health care disparities.
