Objectives of SNP MOC
Scoring Guidelines
• Revise structure of the MOC to help plans
better understand and meet the
requirements
• Model after S&P measures format
– Approach familiar to the SNPs
– SNPs have publicly requested such a change
– Supports consistent scoring of MOCs
SNP Approval MOC Training, Elements 1-2 January 21, 2014
2
MOC Scoring Guidelines
• Used revised Appendix 1 of the MA
application Model of Care Upload
document—kept requirements intact, but
revised formatting
• Received input from stakeholders: Public
Comment process
– 222 comments
– Health plans, trade associations, provider
groups, others

How will NCQA Score the MOC?
• Scoring will be similar to previous years
• MOC elements worth 0-4 points, based on
# of factors met.
• Total of 60 points (15 elements)
• converted to percentage scores
– E.g., 50 points = 83.33% (2-year approval)
