IPRO’s Oversight Extends to NJ, LA and PR

IPRO has added two more states and a U.S. territory to the list of local governments
for which it provides Medicaid managed care oversight. Under the federally-supported
External Quality Review Organization (EQRO) authority, independent organizations
analyze the performance of Medicaid managed care plans in order to assure access
and quality. In recent weeks, IPRO has won competitive EQRO procurements in

Louisiana, New Jersey and Puerto Rico. Other states for which IPRO continues to
provide Medicaid managed care oversight include New York, Kentucky, Nebraska and
Pennsylvania. “We’re pleased that we’re increasingly being recognized as not just
a regional leader, but a national leader in EQRO activity,” said Virginia Hill, IPRO’s
Vice President for Managed Care. For more information on EQRO activities, visit
