The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has selected the National Committee for Quality Assurance as an accrediting entity for insurers participating in health insurance exchanges authorized under the Affordable Care Act.

The selection expands NCQA’s scope as it already accredits health plans for other purposes. The organization has developed an Exchange Add-on Survey, which is a streamlined approach for commercial, Medicare and Medicaid payers already accredited under NCQA. Insurers that will administer their insurance exchange product line in the same manner as an existing NCQA-accredited product line can be accredited for the exchange without conducting a formal survey.
