Get Started – Provider Network Accreditation

Many health insurers rely on tiered and narrow networks to manage costs, and use third-party organizations to validate their networks. In response to these network designs, states and the federal government implemented regulations requiring a minimum level of access to care and services. NCQA Provider Network Accreditation creates a framework for organizations to provide efficient, accurate and consistent network management and credentialing services.


Use evidence-based standards to perform a gap analysis and determine improvement areas.

The standards, provide a framework for implementing industry best practices to ensure:

  • Network accessibility and transparency.
    • Consistent monitoring of practitioner availability and accessibility of services.
    • Efficient collection and analysis of member-experience data.
    • Appropriate credentialing of practitioners and providers.
