Kudos: Molina Healthcare Receives Award for Medi-Cal Service Deliveries

Molina Healthcare of California received the 2008 Bronze Quality Award from the state Department of Healthcare Services for outstanding HEDIS performance for Medi-Cal managed care in San Diego County.

“Quality health care for our members is one of the most important goals at Molina. Well child exams were just one of the quality measures for which we exceeded the 90th percentile,” said Richard Sanchez, chief medical officer for Molina Healthcare of California. “Reaching the 90th percentile means that 90 percent of our sampled eligible members, who needed this type of care, received it.”

In addition to achieving outstanding performance for well child care for 15-month-olds, Molina Healthcare of California received high marks for well child care ages 3-6, childhood immunizations, and care of nephropathy for diabetics.

Molina Healthcare of California participates in annual HEDIS audits as part of California’s quality reporting and voluntary quality accreditation process with the independent, nonprofit National Committee for Quality Assurance. The HEDIS, or health care effectiveness data and information set, is a tool used by more than 90 percent of U.S. health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service.
