Superior Vision selects highly-qualified ophthalmologists and optometrists for our network via an extensive application and National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)-certified credentialing process.
Superior Vision collects, validates, and submits all documentation, history and quality data for review by the Credentialing Committee. Source verification of education, licensure, board certification, and DEA registration (where applicable) is obtained, and the National Practitioner Data Bank is queried for all applicants. The Credentialing Committee conducts an assessment of each eye care professional’s credentials, based upon pre-established guidelines of professional qualifications and office qualifications deemed necessary to provide quality patient care.

Recredentialing, conducted every three years, is based on a review of updated documentation (licensure, National Practitioner Data Bank inquiry, malpractice history, etc.), as well as reports generated through the patient satisfaction feedback mechanism and Superior Vision’s Quality Assurance Program, including site visits.
