Our Public Sector Advisory Council (PSAC) engages state and federal representatives to promote alignment of health care quality goals, maximize accountability and minimize the burden of quality measurement.
The public sector is a valued ally to NCQA. As our partnerships continue to evolve, it is imperative that our programs and services remain relevant and well-coordinated with state and federal priorities. The advice and counsel of our Public Sector Advisory Council members help NCQA meet this important challenge.
The Public Sector Advisory Council meets twice a year to:
- Provide ongoing input and advice on NCQA’s programs, products and services.
- Identify public sector concerns and issues appropriate for NCQA focus.
- Promote understanding of NCQA’s mission and programs among public sector representatives/advocates.
- Develop strategies to better coordinate and streamline oversight of the health care delivery system.
The Council does not serve as a voting body for NCQA’s programs. However, its recommendations are considered a critical factor in the decision processes for development, maintenance and retirement of any of our evaluation program requirements.
Council members include representatives from the following public sector entities:
- California Public Employees’ Retirement System.
- Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
- Indiana Family and Social Services Administration.
- Maine Bureau of Insurance.
- Maryland Health Care Commission.
- Michigan Department of Community Health.

- National Association of Medicaid Directors.
- National Conference of State Legislators.
- National Governors Association.
