Health Plans to Join the Attestation Effort – ANA Continues to Speak Out Against Harmful Cuts to Health Care. – (866) 348-2889
Attestation is our national education and outreach effort to ensure that all eligible entities are meeting their NPDB reporting requirements as mandated by federal law. During attestation, Data Bank administrators or other entity officials attest that their organizations have submitted all reportable adverse actions and medical malpractice payments to the NPDB.
This month, health plans join hospitals, health centers, and state licensing boards in this effort. Attestation confirms that your health plan has met its reporting obligations. Complete and accurate reporting to the NPDB provides queriers with the information needed for credentialing, privileging, and employment decisions that directly affect patient safety.
