Below is the process and recommended timeline for earning NCQA PCSP Recognition using the redesigned recognition process for practices that are currently recognized as NCQA Level 3. To renew your Recognition, you will follow the Annual Reporting process. You will attest to some policies and procedures and submit data to NCQA. This means submitting evidence via documentation or providing measurement data. Annual Reporting will sustain your practice’s recognition and help you foster continuous improvement.
|TIME BEFORE RECOGNITION
|Recognition Learning the Annual Reporting Requirements
|Download the Annual Reporting Requirements needed to sustain your PCSP Recognition. Requirements change from year to year. Be sure to download the requirements for the year of your first Annual Report.
|Determine which Annual Reporting requirements you are required to submit
|Ensure your practice is aligned with the Annual Reporting requirements for your reporting year. You will attest to continuing to meet the current PCSP requirements without providing the evidence required of practices seeking recognition for the first time.
|Log into Q-PASS
|You will need to claim your organization in Q-PASS to get started. Please note: Multi-site accounts should contact NCQA in advance through My NCQA.
|Update/confirm organization information
|Update/confirm organizational information in Q-PASS. In Q-PASS you can update clinician information, contact information, change addresses and add users to your account.
|Enroll through Q-PASS
|This starts the Annual Reporting process. NOTE: Enroll at least 3 months prior to your recognition expiration date. All Annual Reporting requirements (data and documentation) must be submitted no later than 30 days prior to your recognition expiration date.
|Connect with Your NCQA Representative
|You will be assigned an NCQA Representative who will be available to assist you with educational resources and answers to your questions.
|Demonstrate that you are embracing measurement and quality improvement. Submit documentation and data via Q-PASS.
|NCQA notifies your practice of its Recognition status.
|Print Your Recognition Certificate
|Once notified of recognition, go into Q-PASS and print Recognition Certificate (from the My Evaluation screen in Q-PASS).
|Your practice performs ongoing quality improvement and submits evidence of this during Annual Reporting to sustain NCQA Recognition and succeed as an NCQA-Recognized PCSP.
