Date:8/6/2009

NEW YORK, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Care to Care, a New York based Radiology Benefit Management (RBM) Company, announced today that is has been awarded Full Accreditation in Health Utilization Management by URAC, a Washington, D.C. based independent, nonprofit health care accrediting organization.

URAC promotes continuous improvement in the quality and efficiency of health care management through processes of accreditation and education. URAC standards ensure that only appropriately trained, qualified clinical personnel conduct and oversee the utilization review process, that a reasonable and timely appeals process is in place, and that medical decisions are based on valid clinical criteria. By receiving this distinction so early in its history, Care to Care, has demonstrated to its clients and members that its principles of rigorous clinical and service quality standards have been well placed.

"It is admirable for any company to dedicate itself to meeting such high standards. To have accomplished our goal and gain full accreditation as quickly as we have is the direct result of the dedication the entire staff has to providing best-in-class radiology benefit management for health plans and their members. I am proud to have been a part of this effort," said Chief Medical Officer Michael Komarow MD, JD.

"By applying for and receiving URAC accreditation, Care to Care has demonstrated a commitment to quality health care," said Alan P. Spielman, URAC president and CEO. "Quality health care is crucial to our nation's welfare and it is important to have organizations that are willing to measure themselves against national standards and undergo rigorous evaluation by an independent accrediting body."

"Care to Care is honored to receive Health Utilization Management Accreditation from URAC," responded Barbara Kelman, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. "We are very proud to be recognized in the industry for providing outstanding services. This distinction underscores our commitment to quality and provides assurance to patients, providers, purchasers, regulators and employers that the practices of Care to Care are clinically sound, fair and equitable for all parties."

In addition to obtaining URAC accreditation, Care to Care has also recently become certified by New Jersey's Department of Banking and Insurance as an Organized Delivery System (ODS). This approval permits Care to Care to perform network management and utilization management for carriers operating in New Jersey. Such accomplishments demonstrate Care to Care's commitment to providing high quality services and care as it continues to rapidly expand.
