AUSTIN, Texas, June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- A longstanding commitment to providing comprehensive healthcare helped Allwell from Superior HealthPlan earn one of just 18 quality achievement awards from Pharmacy Quality Alliance (PQA). The awards are based on medication quality measures according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare Star Ratings.
"For years, quality has been among the top priorities for our health plan, which is why we're proud to receive this award from the highly respected Pharmacy Quality Alliance," said Dr. David Harmon, Chief Medical Director at Superior. "We work hard every day to offer the best possible healthcare to our members because we know that good healthcare leads to healthier, happier people and communities."
Allwell from Superior HealthPlan was one of just six plans to earn the PQA Quality Improvement Award for its Allwell Dual Medicare (HMO SNP) product. These awards are given to plans with the most significant combined increase in star ratings from 2018 to 2019, and are based on measures including medication adherence for diabetes, cholesterol or hypertension.
"Earning an award like this takes a strong partnership between Superior employees and high-quality providers and pharmacists across the state," said Harmon. "We are proud to be recognized by PQA, and will continue our efforts to deliver quality healthcare and support to every individual we serve."
