Measures Description
The Health Plan Accreditation Status for Ohio’s Medicaid Managed Care Plans Document description: Medicaid managed care plans (MCPs) and MyCare Ohio Plans (MCOPs) are required to achieve and maintain an acceptable health plan accreditation status awarded by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for the Ohio Medicaid line of business. Each year, the Ohio Department of Medicaid evaluates Plans’ performance on this requirement. NCQA accreditation information, as well as current NCQA accreditation status and expiration date for each contracted plan as of December 2017 are provided in the Health Plan Accreditation Status for Ohio’s Medicaid Managed Care Plans document.

The report shows results of these measures by managed care plan and statewide, grouped by population stream: Healthy Children, Healthy Adults, Women of Reproductive Age, Behavioral Health, and Chronic Conditions.  Individual managed care plan and statewide measure results are trended over a 4-year period and evaluated for comparison to national Medicaid benchmarks.
