Every plan awarded NCQA's health equity standard, state-by-state

Of the 1,100-plus health plans accredited by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, 176 have received the health equity accreditation granted by the association. 

The standard is granted to plans with an organizational focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, collecting health equity data and reporting outcomes by race and ethnicity. 

An additional 32 plans have earned the committee's new health equity plus designation, which includes more standards for addressing social determinants of health. 

Here are all of the plans that have been granted the designation.
