Why is data attestation so important?

Keeping your data accurate helps our members find you. Our members make most of their care decisions based on:

  • New patient acceptance
  • Office location
  • Services and treatments provided

Additionally, some members make care decisions based on your cultural competencies, such as:

  • Specialized education for cultural understanding
  • LGBTQ+ services
  • Language
