PCSP Benefits and Practice Transformation Support
Patient-Centered Specialty Practices (PCSP) help establish patient-centered care throughout the health care system. They play a key role in achieving the “triple aim” of better quality, better patient experience and reduced cost.
There are a variety of initiatives, tools, programs, education and trainings to help practices earn recognition.
PCSP Benefits to Practices, Clinicians and Patients
PCSP Recognition helps facilitate team-based care by improving collaboration with primary care and recognizing specialists who streamline and improve health care delivery.
Government and Private Payer Incentives and Support
Many payers – government and private – offer incentives or enhanced reimbursement for becoming an NCQA recognized PCMH.
Review the directory of public, private and multi-payer initiatives, by state, that may be available to your practice—including NCQA Partners in Quality.

HIT Program Minimizes Documentation and Saves Time
An NCQA prevalidated health information technology (HIT) can expedite the PCMH/PCSP Recognition survey process.
Medical Board MOC Credits
Clinicians in NCQA-Recognized practices may be able to receive maintenance of certification (MOC) credits towards their board-level certifications.
Promoting Your NCQA Recognition
PCMH Recognition sets you apart from your peers, and can help attracting new patients and contract with payers.
Recognized practices are listed in the NCQA Report Cards on the NCQA website. The directory can be searched by practices and clinicians.
Sponsorship helps us make programs like PCSP possible.
