Aetna

​Known for Quality

The KelseyCare Aetna​ health plan is affiliated with Kelsey-Seybold Clinic, a nationally recognized medical group practice and the first Accountable Care Organization (ACO) in the United States to receive accreditation by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). 

Today, Kelsey-Seybold is the only NCQA-accredited ACO in Houston and one of only two in the state of Texas. Kelsey-Seybold patients are connected to a caring and compassionate team of doctors who work together to deliver the high-quality, efficient, patient-centered care they deserve.

Cancer Ce​nter Achievements Earn Commendation

The prestigious American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer (CoC) granted Kelsey-Seybold Clinic a three-year approval with commendation for the Kelsey-Seybold Cancer Center’s achievements in cancer treatment, research, and supportive care.

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic is the first freestanding, non-hospital based cancer program in the nation to be recognized by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer. This commendation also includes Kelsey-Seybold’s Breast Diagnostic Center — one of the nation’s leading models for fast-tracking diagnostics for women.

Nationally Recogniz​​ed for Excellence in Diabetes Care

More than 95 Kelsey-Seybold physicians have earned a prestigious national certification of excellence in diabetes care, awarded by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Kelsey-Seybold Clinic physicians now represent the largest number of physicians to earn this certification in Houston. Certification through NCQA’s national Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP) is achieved by ​following a comprehensive, individualized review process that verifies a physician’s adherence to national standards of excellence in caring for patients diagnosed with diabetes.

Kelsey-Seybold is also accredited by the prestigious Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care, Inc. (AAAHC) for providing high-quality care and services consistent with AAAHC standards.

Kelsey-Seybold also earned NCQA’s Physician Practice Connections Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition at Level 3, the highest level, for its integrated and coordinated care delivery system, which supports quality, access, continuity of care, and better patient involvement.
