PCMH Application Discount Code

The New York State Department of Health (NSYDOH), in partnership with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), is permitted to offer a sponsorship code (a 20% discount) to clinicians who participate with Medicaid in New York and are applying to NCQA for new or renewed Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition. The discount code may be applied to pre-clinician submission fees for the 2011 or 2014 PCMH recognition programs. Because NCQA offers multi-site practices of three or more independent sites a 50% discount per clinician application fees, such practices are not eligible for an additional discount through this sponsorship.

The NYSDOH-sponsored discount code is available only to clinicians who currently participate with the New York State Medicaid program. To obtain the code, the applicant must send a written request for the code to the NYSDOH at The request must include the name and National Provider Identifier (NPI) of each clinician requesting use of the code. Please allow up to two weeks for the NYSDOH to review your request once submitted.

Once obtained, the code can be entered into the 'discount code' field of the NCQA PCMH online application any time prior to submission in order to apply a 20% discount. Questions specific to NYSDOH's PCMH discount code can be sent to General questions about NCQA's PCMH recognition, sponsorship program, or online application should be sent to NCQA via their online portal:
