For 2019-2020, Jai Medical Systems has once again earned a rating of 5 out of 5 from NCQA. In fact, Jai Medical Systems is the only Medicaid Health Plan in the United States to earn a 5 out of 5 rating from NCQA for four consecutive years.
“We are very proud to once again receive a 5 out of 5 rating from NCQA. To be recognized as one of the highest rated health plans in the United States is truly an honor.

In addition to Jai Medical Systems’ earning the distinction of being one of the Highest Rated Medicaid Health Plans in the United States, the organization has also earned an Accreditation status of Excellent for the fifth year in a row.

It is only awarded to those plans that meet or exceed NCQA’s rigorous requirements for consumer protection and quality improvement and deliver excellent clinical care.
When asked about current initiatives, Mr. Seunarine said “Although not directly related to NCQA ratings, currently, we are working diligently on eliminating Hepatitis C from the population we serve. We are actively identifying and testing individuals at high-risk for Hepatitis C infection, while ensuring successful treatment for those individuals who test positive. We believe the curing of Hepatitis C to be one of the most exciting areas of focus for any organization committed to public health and improving the healthcare status of people. Further, we believe that disease prevention and elimination will be the new frontier and standard by which all health plans may be measured in the future.”
