Quality Improvement Resources

Welcome to our Quality Improvement Resources! At Aetna Better Health of Pennsylvania, we value our provider partners. We want to make it easy for you to care for our members and guide them down the path to better health.

To achieve this goal we have developed the Quality Improvement Resources. This resource will benefit you in the following ways:

  • Help improve HEDIS Ratings, Pay for Quality Scores, and incentive payments
  • Provide coding tips from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)
  • Allow easy access to important provider documents and tools.

Quality Measure Educational Documents include both HEDIS measures developed by the NCQA and Performance Measures for the State of Pennsylvania
