Data reflect NCQA’s 2019 ratings of Medicaid managed care plans. The plans included in the NCQA data do not always match the MCOs in other tables in the Medicaid Managed Care Market Tracker, or they may appear under different names. Discrepancies may be due to differences across reports and sources, timeframes, and other factors. MCOs not accredited or rated by NCQA may be accredited or rated by other organizations.
The NCQA plan overall rating scale is 0-5 (0 is lower performance, 5 is higher performance). NCQA accreditation is as of June 30, 2018. For more information about how NCQA rates plans, please see NCQA’s methodology.
NCQA Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2018-2019 – Summary Report (Medicaid). Special Data Request, October 2019.
Partial Data Reported: Plans with partial data do not receive a rating, but NCQA lists them in the ratings and shows their scores on the measures they report. A plan is considered to have partial data if it submits HEDIS and CAHPS measure data for public reporting, but has insufficient data for one or more measures, submits HEDIS data for public reporting but does not submit CAHPS data, or vice versa, or earned NCQA Accreditation without HEDIS data (health plan accreditation standards only) and did not submit HEDIS or CAHPS data for public reporting.
No Data Reported: Plans that submit results but do not report data publicly, or plans that report no HEDIS, CAHPS or accreditation information to NCQA, are given a rating status of “No Data Reported”.
Insufficient Data: Plan has “missing values” (i.e., NA or NB) in more than 50 percent of the weight of the measures used in the methodology.
