According to URAC's web site:
Accreditation is a process by which an impartial organization (URAC) will review a company's operations to ensure that the company is conducting business in a manner consistent with national standards.
They also state that:
URAC standards are developed by a committee of experts representing diverse interests in the health care community: providers, health care organizations, insurers, and the public interest. When new standards are developed, experts from that particular area of health care delivery participate on the committee. URAC always circulates draft standards for public comment so that anyone can have input in the standards development process.
However, their web site does not seem to have copies of the latest draft standards available anywhere. Further, the contact address listing "For information about URAC accreditation programs and processes" is the only one with no address given. I have sent in an inquiry to find the correct address.
