​​​​National Committee for Quality Assurance Accreditation Workgroup

DHCS conducts annual compliance reviews of all Medi-Cal managed care health plans (MCPs) but does not currently deem the results of the reviews to an accrediting entity, although federal regulations permit the state to do so.

Additionally, DHCS does not currently require Medi-Cal MCPs to be accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). Out of 26 MCPs in the state, 12 plans currently have NCQA accreditation, and four are pending an accreditation visit.

This workgroup will provide input on topics related to the standards and processes of requiring all MCPs to obtain NCQA accreditation, including consideration of the proposed accreditation requirements.

Workgroup Meetings

All workgroup meetings will be held in Sacramento at 1700 K Street in the First Floor Conference Room. Please arrive 10 minutes early to sign in at the front desk.

The public is welcome to attend all meetings by phone or in-person. A public call-in option will be active for all workgroup meetings.
