Join the IPA! Credentialing

In August 2015, after undergoing a rigorous on-site audit and offsite survey conducted by National Committee for Quality Assurance

(NCQA), San Juan Independent Practice Association (San Juan IPA) again received Physician Organization Certification in Credentialing and Re-credentialing. San Juan IPA has been certified by NCQA since October 2003.

The NCQA Accreditation Process is a nationally recognized evaluation that purchasers, regulators, and consumers can use to assess

managed care plans. The NCQA Standards for Accreditation are intended to help organizations achieve the highest level of performance

possible, reduce patient risk of untoward outcomes, and create an enviroNMent of continuous improvement.


Achieving PO Certification from NCQA demonstrates that San Juan IPA has the systems, process and personnel in place to continuously

improve the quality of care it delivers, and to help health plan clients meet their accreditation goals.
