Managed Care Accountability Set (MCAS) Measures

Managed Care Accountability Set Quality Measures

Gold Coast Health Plan (GCHP) monitors and reports the Managed Care Accountability Set (MCAS) performance measures to assess and improve clinical quality of care. MCAS is based on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Child and Adult Core Set Measures, which includes NCQA HEDIS® measures. All state Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans are required to annually report these measures to the state Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).

MCAS Reference Materials

To help providers understand the MCAS performance measure requirements, GCHP’s Quality Improvement Department has developed a reference guide and tip sheets to share key information on individual MCAS measures. These tip sheets are not intended to direct clinical judgment, but to serve as resources in understanding measure specifications while providing guidance for measure compliance.
