Federal Policy

At the federal level, NCQA Accreditation, quality measures and patient-centered clinical programs are valued components of health care policy. Both the Affordable Care Act of 2010 and the Medicare Access & CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 include many provisions that support and build on NCQA’s mission and capabilities. This includes provisions promoting Patient-Centered Medical Homes, Patient-Centered Specialty Practices, use of quality measures to pay both health plans and clinicians for value, and NCQA’s performance-based Health Plan Accreditation.
