Family Health Network (FHN) has been awarded Gold Honors for Health Care Consumer Engagement and Protection by URAC, a leading national health care accreditation organization. This award recognizes the achievements of organizations that are effectively advancing the role of consumers as active participants in health care through health plan best practices.

FHN – a nonprofit health plan serving families under Medicaid – was honored for its program “Family Health Network and Sinai Urban Health Institute, Asthma Care Partners and Medicaid Families: Improving Health Together” which uses community health workers to educate asthma-affected individuals about the disease, its triggers, and proper management in their homes and over the phone.

Anthem Blue Cross of California was awarded Silver honors. Health Care Service Corporation and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois in partnership with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and Illinois Hospital Association won Bronze. Honorable mentions went to Aetna and Emblem Health.

“This year's Best Practices Awards winners are recognized for their leadership in driving innovation for the health care industry,” said Kylanne Green, president and CEO of URAC. “These companies have made a difference in the lives of consumers by implementing leading programs with results that matter.”
