4C Has Received 3-Year NCQA Accreditation!

The three-year accreditation recognizes “strong performance” of the functions outlined in NCQA’s Case Management standards as well as dedication to care coordination, patient-centeredness and continuous quality improvement.  


NCQA’s accreditation is the culmination of a voluntary, nearly three-year review process for 4C. NCQA’s high standards encourage Case Management organizations to continuously enhance the quality of services they deliver. NCQA Case Management Accreditation is the only program that focuses on care transition, the management of patients moving between providers or treatment settings.
