URAC Invites Health Management Industry, Public for Comments on Changes to Its Core Accreditation Standards
Date:2/28/2008

nd chief health services officer for American Specialty Health. "The current standards revision cycle is focused on two primary and important aspects of the health care system. First, the advancement of standards that support consumer health and welfare, and second, updating standards and the interpretive guide to acknowledge significant changes within the health care system."

The standards are available for review at http://www.urac.org. URAC strongly prefers to receive comments through the online comment form available at http://webapps.urac.org/urac_public_comment/core.html. Alternately, comments may be submitted by email (comments@urac.org); by mail (URAC, Attn: Public Comments, 1220 L Street, NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20005); or may be faxed to (202) 216-9006. Please note that submissions received through a method other than the online comment form should include the following information: 1) the product name; 2) the standard abbreviation and number; 3) comment classification (standard or weight); and 4) comments.

"These standards updates are being made with stakeholder input; public comment recommendations are critical to the standards development process," Metz said. "Every comment is reviewed by the committee in the updating process."

All comments submitted by the deadline will be considered prior to final changes to the standards. Revisions will be submitted to URAC's Board of Directors for final approval at the end of July, 2008, and applications will be accepted under the revised standards starting Jan. 1, 2009.
