FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NationsHearing, LLC., a leader in the hearing healthcare industry, today announces the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Review Oversight Committee has awarded the company Accreditation in Credentialing and Recredentialing. Most notably, NationsHearing achieved a 100% score across multiple quality standards following a rigorous assessment of its processes for credentialing and recredentialing. As a result, NationsHearing received a 3-year Accreditation effective through August 26, 2022.
Credentialing and recredentialing is an essential safety component of the healthcare system, and the NCQA seal is a widely recognized symbol.
