A Brief Introduction to NCQA
• Private, independent non-profit
health care quality oversight organization
• Founded in 1990 - Celebrating 23 years
• Committed to measurement,
transparency and accountability
• Unites diverse groups around common
goal: improving health care quality
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
3
NCQA: Mission and Vision
• Mission
– To improve the quality of health care
• Vision
– To transform health care
through measurement,
transparency and
accountability
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
4
NCQA: COMMITTED TO MEASUREMENT,
TRANSPARENCY, ACCOUNTABILITY
Quality measurement
means:
• Use of objective measures based
on evidence
• Results that are comparable
across organizations
• Impartial third-party evaluation
and audit
• Public Reporting
NCQA’s quality programs
include:
• Accreditation of health plans
using performance data
• HEDIS clinical measures
• CAHPS consumer survey
• Measurement of quality in
provider groups
• Physician Recognition
• ACOs
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
5
Achieving the Mission
• Over 70 percent of all Americans enrolled in
health plans that are accredited by NCQA
• More than 90 percent of managed care
organizations report HEDIS® quality data
• 41 states and the federal government rely on
NCQA Accreditation and HEDIS
• More than 42,846 clinicians and 5,804
practices* have earned NCQA Recognition;
6 programs form the basis of quality
improvement programs and P4P nationwide
*As of 5/31/13
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program

Objectives of SNP Assessment Program
• Develop a robust and comprehensive
assessment strategy
• Evaluate the quality of care SNPs provide
• Evaluate how SNPs address the special
needs of their beneficiaries
• Provide data to CMS to allow plan-plan
and year-year comparisons
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
7
SNP Assessment Process
• Year-to-Year Approach
– Defining and assessing desirable structural
characteristics
– Assessing processes
– Assessing outcomes
• Two main components
– HEDIS Measures-focus on clinical
performance
– Structure & Process measures-focus on
structural characteristics and systems

HEDIS 101
What Is HEDIS?
Healthcare
Effectiveness
Data &
Information
Set
HEDIS is an evolving
set of standard
specifications for
measuring health
plan performance
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
14
Where Did HEDIS Come From?
•Originally developed by employers
and the HMO group in 1991; NCQA
took charge of HEDIS in 1992
•Expanded in 1996 to cover all three
product lines: commercial, Medicare
and Medicaid
•Addresses the leading causes
of death and morbidity
•Includes information on quality,
utilization and cost
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
15
How Are HEDIS Data Used?
• Federal, state and
other regulatory
requirements
• Performance-based
accreditation
• Health plans use for
RFP/RFI preparation
• Quality improvement
activities and health
plan operations
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
16
Data Reporting
• Data are reported to
NCQA in June of the
reporting year
• Data reflect events
that occurred during
the measurement year
(calendar year)
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
17
Data Reporting
•Example:
– HEDIS 2013 data are reported in
June 2013
– Data reflects events that occurred
January–December 2012 (per
specs)
– HEDIS 2013 = 2012 data
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
18
Effectiveness of Care Measures
•Clinical quality of care
Focus
– Preventive care
– Up-to-date treatments for acute episodes of illness
– Chronic disease care
– Appropriate medication treatment
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
19
Collecting
HEDIS Data
Three HEDIS Data Sources
Administrative
Claims
Encounter
Eligibility
Provider
Surveys
Medical
Records
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
21
Selecting an Eligible Population
• Member ID
• Age (DOB)
• Enrollment date and type
• Dates of service
• Diagnosis and procedure
codes
• Provider specialty
• Pharmacy
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
22
Clinical Measures Data Collection
• Defining the denominator is critical
• Administrative: Claims and
encounter data
– Denominator: Based on all eligible
members of the population
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
23
Structure & Process Measures
What is a S&P Measure?
• A statement about acceptable
performance or results
• Assesses a plan’s ability to comply with
specific requirements
• Focus on systems necessary for quality
care
– Policies & procedures, reports, materials
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
25
How are S&P Measures Developed
• Similar to HEDIS measure
development
• Initial literature review
and evidence
• Geriatric Measurement
Advisory Panel (GMAP)
– Diverse set of expert
stakeholders
– Technical expert panels
also formed, if necessary
• Pilot Tests/Public
Comment
– Determine
feasibility/burden
– Input from stakeholders
• Final approval from
GMAP and CMS

2013 Assessment Against S&P Measures
SNP Assessment Process
• S&P Measures assessment
– Data collection through Web-based
Interactive Survey System (ISS) survey tool.
• Several levels of review:
– Off-site Review (Level 1)
– Executive Review/Plan Comment (Level 2)
– Final Eyes (Level 3)
– Final Stage Review (Level 4)
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
38
S&P Assessment
• Plan Comment Period
– Plans will have an opportunity to provide
additional information to clarify issues from
original submission materials
– Quick turnaround: Plans will have to respond
to NCQA requests for more information
rapidly
– One-time opportunity: Only chance plans
have to provide additional documentation
before data is finalized and sent to CMS
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
39
S&P Assessment
• Plan Comment Period (continued)
– If you have questions, please contact a SNP
team member immediately
– Please ensure additional data submitted is
within the look-back period or it will not meet
the requirements
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
40
Final Stage Review
• Occurs after plans receive preliminary
final scores
• One last opportunity for review
• Only for scoring inconsistencies
– Radio buttons and support text language
differ
– Different scores for similar SNP PBPs
• No new documentation will be reviewed
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
41
Look-Back Period
• What is the Look-Back Period & how does it work?
– The look-back period is the six-month period prior to
survey submission – April 15, 2013 to October 15, 2013.
All documentation must be current as of the look-back
period but it could have been developed before that
time.
– Data used for reports can go back up to 1 year prior to
submission, unless the explanation indicates otherwise.
– For evidence consisting of a policy, an organization
that did not have one in place can develop and
incorporate it into its operations during the look-back
period.
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program

SNP Data & Reporting
Data Submissions
• S&P measures

– ISS data collection tool
– No Fees required to submit
– All SNPs that were operational as of January 1,
2012, AND renewed in 2013.

Report—publicly available enrollment data
SNP Training – Intro to NCQA & SNP Assessment Program
49
What happens after submission?
• NCQA Analysis of HEDIS and S&P
measures
– Comparison to MA plans (HEDIS) and to other
SNPs
– Demographic (size, type, region)
– Statistical significance
• Deliver report to CMS
