Providers are required to maintain member records in compliance with the policies and procedures of Carelon and accrediting bodies. Carelon adheres to standards of accrediting organizations such as the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) and federal and state regulations. These standards require that patient records are maintained in a manner that is current, comprehensive, detailed, organized and legible to promote effective patient care and quality review. Treatment records are subject to audit by accrediting and regulatory authorities as part of Carelon’s accreditation process or regulatory review, and are also subject to random audits by the Carelon Quality Management Department.
Provider participation in random treatment record audits is an integral part of Carelon’s quality management program and is a condition of network participation.
