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 Accreditation Handbook for Health Plans, v41 and the Accreditation Handbook for FEHB Health Plans, v 41 were issued in November 2020.
