Employers are vital partners in NCQA’s drive to improve health care quality.

As employers struggle with the high cost of providing health care to their employees, the underlying issue of ensuring that employees receive high-quality, appropriate care remains.

NCQA’s mission is to improve the quality of American health care. We use measurement, transparency and accountability to drive quality improvement.

NCQA is a partner to employers in their drive for quality improvement. We provide information and resources to employers as they work to improve the health and well-being of their workforce.
