Quality

WellCare of Nebraska wants to ensure quality, cost-effective health care solutions for our members. Our Quality Improvement (QI) Program aims to advance patient safety and care so our members can stay healthy and manage chronic health problems.

Provider Participation

Network Providers are contractually required to cooperate with quality improvement activities. Providers are invited to volunteer for participation in the QI Program. Avenues for participation include committee representation, quality/performance improvement projects, Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) assessments and feedback/input via satisfaction surveys, grievances and calls to Customer Service.
