NCQA Promotional Item Pre-Approval No Longer Required

NCQA has issued the following announcement regarding pre-approval of promotional material, which is of interest to MSPs who work in the commercial CVO setting:

As of August 1, 2011, NCQA will no longer routinely require that you submit for our advance approval your promotional materials referencing your NCQA status. Instead, we will be instituting an audit of promotional materials to ensure they comply with NCQA's Marketing and Advertising Guidelines as more fully described below for NCQA Accreditation, Certification, Recognition, Distinction and Health Insurance Plan Rankings.

The new streamlined process is described in the NCQA Marketing and Advertising Guidelines and is intended to reduce your burden when you publicize your NCQA status. The updated guidelines will be available on our Web site
