Medical Mutual of Ohio Earns Top Accreditation for Product Excellence
Date:3/31/2008

CLEVELAND, March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- The report card from The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has been issued and Medical Mutual of Ohio's commercial products have passed with flying colors.

In recognizing Medical Mutual's commitment to provide quality healthcare to its members and noting improvements to the company's business structure, NCQA awarded Medical Mutual the Accreditation Status of Excellent - the highest level achievable.

Medical Mutual products included in the Excellent Accreditation Status are Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans SuperMed Plus(R) and Ohio Med(TM). Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plans HMO Health Ohio(R) and SuperMed HMO(R) and Point-of-Service (POS) Plans SuperMed Select(R) and SuperMed Preferred.

In addition, Medical Mutual's Medicare Advantage products were reviewed by NCQA and were awarded Commendable Status.

NCQA is an independent, non-profit organization that assesses and reports on the quality of the nation's managed care plans.

"Our accreditation achievement is important because health plans earning NCQA accreditation tend to substantially outperform non-accredited health plans across a wide range of measures of clinical quality and member satisfaction," said Paula Sauer, Medical Mutual's vice president of Care Management.

"This good news means Medical Mutual's HMO and POS plans have maintained their Excellent Accreditation Status under the Managed Care Organization (MCO) accreditation review," said Sauer. "It also indicates Medical Mutual's PPO plans received Excellent Accreditation Status the first time they were evaluated under MCO accreditation review."

The Excellent Accreditation Status was awarded after rigorous evaluation by NCQA of all aspects of Medical Mutual's plans, including preventive health services, member satisfaction, physician credentialing and quality improvement.

The review included both on and off-site evaluations conducted by a team of physicians and managed care experts. A national oversight committee of physicians then analyzed the team's findings and assigned Medical Mutual's Excellent Status based on the Company's performance compared to NCQA standards.

Founded in 1934, Medical Mutual of Ohio is the oldest and largest health insurance company based in Ohio. The company serves its customers through high-quality, affordable group and personal health insurance plans, and third- party administrative services to self-insured group customers.
