WellCare of Florida, Inc. (WellCare) is dedicated to providing the highest quality of integrated care to our members. We would like to recognize and incentivize our partner providers who have aligned with that goal. So, we have created the following quality subsidy program for those providers that are also committed to providing quality integrated care by becoming an Accredited/Certified Behavioral Health Home by a Nationally Recognized Accrediting Body, e.g. Joint Commission, CARF or NCQA.

• Timeline of activities to accreditation/certification
• Cost details of accreditation/certification

*Please note - Proposals are subject to review and approval by the WellCare Senior Leadership. WellCare reserves, in its sole discretion, final decision-making authority regarding the award of any subsidy and may, at its sole discretion, modify, limit, or cancel this program at any time.

Upon WellCare Senior Leadership approval of proposal, the provider must provide the following items within 30 days of receipt:
• Accreditation/Certification as a Behavioral Health Home
