NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home / Specialty Practice


MOC Part 4 points: 40
Processing Fee: $0

You may be eligible to earn ABP MOC Part 4 credit if you attest to meaningful participation in quality improvement (QI) projects as part of earning National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition (all levels) or Patient-Centered Specialty Practice. The ABP will accept NCQA 2011 and 2014 standards only. This is an individual attestation, even if you participated as part of a group.

If you have met the following meaningful participation requirements, you can attest to your participation by logging into to your ABP Portfolio.

  • “Physician Meaningful Participation” is defined by the ABP as involving both an active role in the project and participation over an appropriate period of time. The ABP approves QI projects in which pediatricians are active participants in implementing change.
  • For MOC purposes, the term “active role” means the pediatrician must:
    • Be intellectually engaged in planning and executing the project.
    • Implement the project’s interventions (the changes designed to improve care).
    • Review data in keeping with the project’s measurement plan.
    • Collaborate actively by attending team meetings.

Please allow up to four weeks upon submission for credit to be awarded. Please note submission of incomplete information may result in additional delays.

[Note: If you participated in QI projects as part of a different PCMH certification process (not NCQA), you can apply for credit through the Small Group project application (≤10 diplomates) or through the Quality Improvement Project Application for >10 diplomates.]
