Federal Policy

At the federal level, NCQA Accreditation and performance measures are valued components of health care policy. The new health care reform law has many provisions that connect to NCQA’s mission and capabilities. The law builds on many of NCQA’s successful activities over the past 20 years and challenges us to take more steps to work with federal and state policymakers to improve quality and value through measurement, accountability and transparency.
