Discount for NCQA's PCMH Recognition Program



The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) is a 2013 National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Recognition Program Sponsor for Patient Centered Medical Homes (PCMH).

One of the benefits of the sponsorship is that NCQA provides SCDHHS with a unique discount code that can be shared with practices in the Medicaid network.  This code will provide a 20% discount off of the per clinician application fee for the PCMH recognition program if used during the 2013 calendar year.  This would reduce the per clinician cost from $500 to $400 for each eligible clinician within the practice.  The 20% discount does not apply to the purchase of the $80 Interactive Survey System (ISS) Tool for PCMH or the Data Collection Tool for clinical programs.  Multi-site applications are eligible for an even greater discount of 50% off the per clinician application fee. 

Practices interested in applying for the PCMH recognition program should contact the MCOs with whom they are contracted to receive the discount code needed to complete NCQA’s online application.

Practices that are in the process of achieving PCMH recognition or that are PCMH-recognized are eligible to participate in SCDHHS’ Incentives and Withholds Program.
