4.20.2020 COVID-19 Why is NCQA requiring commercial and Medicaid Accredited plans to report HEDIS and CAHPS for Measurement Year 2019?

NCQA’s Health Plan Accreditation program consists of three components that together uniquely evaluate a plan’s infrastructure, consistency, quality and compliance. In addition to structure and process standards, NCQA also requires plans to have a robust framework for gathering, reporting, analyzing and acting on member experience (CAHPS) data and health outcomes (HEDIS) measures.

Although compliance with our standards is reviewed every three years, HEDIS/CAHPS reporting is assessed annually. This assessment is two-fold: We evaluate reporting compliance and capabilities and we calculate performance outcomes for benchmarking with other plans. While we will not calculate a performance outcome by way of our Health Plan Ratings in 2020, we will still assess whether plans are maintaining their reporting and quality infrastructure.
