What does the health plan "accreditation status" information on the exchange web page mean?


Accreditation is comprehensive processes by private, non-profit organizations that review how well health plans deliver care and how they work to improve the delivery of care over time. Health plans offered through the Health Insurance Marketplace must be certified by a recognized accrediting body, such as URAQ and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Part of a health plan's certification requires that the plan be accredited by a recognized accrediting entity within a timeframe set by the Health Insurance Marketplace. Accreditation ensures that the plans sold on the Health Insurance Marketplace meet minimum quality, access, non-discrimination and marketing standards in the ACA.
