URAC'S CONSUMER EDUCATION AND SUPPORT STANDARDS SET STAGE FOR NEW CONSUMER-CENTRIC MARKET
Health2 Resources, June 6, 2005
Consumer-directed health care (CDH) plans are on track to become as mainstream as their PPO and HMO counterparts, so on June 6, 2005 URAC launched the first set of standards to address the quality of these programs. URAC (www.urac.org), the organization committed to promoting health care quality across the full spectrum of health service organizations, announced that its board has approved the first ever set of accreditation standards for Consumer Education and Support. The new standards are the first step towards addressing the unique demands of CDH products which call upon consumers to make more of their own decisions about health coverage and personal health.
