VISITE AL SITO
Carelon will conduct site visits to the facility or practitioner’s office(s). The criteria for selection of providers to whom site visits are made includes:
- Volume. If Carelon identifies the provider as a potential high-volume provider, a site visit will be conducted upon:
- Credenziali iniziali
- Recredentialing (at Carelon’s discretion)
- Aggiunta di una nuova sede per lo studio o modifica delle affiliazioni al gruppo dalla precedente decisione in merito alle credenziali.
- Qualità. Una visita in loco può essere condotta come parte del monitoraggio di un'indagine derivante da un reclamo di un membro o da altri problemi di qualità.
The provider will be contacted by Carelon to arrange a mutually convenient time for the site visit. It is important to note that the site visit process is intended as a consultative and educational process. It allows Carelon the opportunity to acknowledge areas of strength and identify opportunities for improvement in our provider network. Providers are sent a copy of the site visit tool prior to the actual site visit so they are aware of the areas in which they will be measured. The site visit tools are also available upon request by calling the toll-free provider line at 877-615-8503.
Following the site visit, the provider will receive a written report that details the site visit findings. Included in the report will be an Action Plan that will provide guidance in areas that the provider needs to strengthen in order to be in compliance with Carelon’s standards.
