Online PR News – 20-May-2016 – Orlando, FL – Med Advantage, an industry-leading Credentials Verification Organization (CVO), announced its sixth (6th) newly granted three-year Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC) accreditation.
URAC’s CVO Accreditation ensures a meaningful, rigorous, and fair credentialing process that protects both patients and providers from poor credentialing practices. The process incorporates “state-of- the-art” scientific evidence to assess health care quality and safety.

Continued accreditation by URAC represents Med Advantage’s commitment to a higher level of service and quality. CEO, John Barrett, attributes this accreditation to his highly-trained and dedicated team of credentialing professionals.
“Without a team who is committed to the highest levels of service with a focus on accuracy, Med Advantage would not have been able to achieve the degree of excellence and recognition we have in the CVO industry today.”
