Health Plans/QHPs/FEHB plans

AAAHC has been surveying and accrediting health plans/managed care organizations since 1983. In 2012, our Standards for health plans were significantly revised with a stronger focus on managed care principles and special programs for dental and behavioral health. 

In 2013, AAAHC was approved as an accreditor for health plans (QHPs) on the state and federal exchanges.

In 2014, we added an accreditation program designed to meet the unique needs of Federal Employee Health Benefits (FEHB) plans.

The 2018 Accreditation Handbooks for Health Plans and FEHB Health Plans were issued in January 2018 and are effective for surveys beginning in June 2018.


For more information on either of these accreditation programs, contact Tom Tassone.
