The National Committee for Quality Assurance, a nonprofit health care accreditation organization, is dedicated to improving health care quality. The Washington D.C.-based organization develops quality standards and performance measures for a broad range of health care entities, including health plans.

Founded in 1990, the National Committee for Quality Assurance works with large employers, policymakers, doctors, patients and health plans to build consensus around important health care quality issues. In order to earn the organization’s seal of approval, accredited health plans face a set of more than 60 standards and must report on their performance in more than 40 areas. These standards promote the adoption of strategies that will improve care, enhance service and reduce costs. Over 70 percent of all Americans are enrolled in National Committee for Quality Assurance-accredited health plans.  

The organization also offers professional development programs, including a certification to become a patient-centered, medical home-certified content expert, seminars, online continuing education opportunities, various trainings and an annual conference. Its public policy team helps state and federal policymakers understand and use National Committee for Quality Assurance programs to improve the quality, experience and cost of care.
