The AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Program is pleased to announce the approval of an automatic one-year extension for recipients in their third year of renewal. This means that recipients in their third year of renewal in 2022, will have one more year (2023) to remain active and apply at the next award level. There is no action needed to receive the extension.
If an active recipient in their third year would like to participate in the 2022 award cycle, they can do so. In this case, please make sure to visit our website to start the 2022 application and learn more about the latest updates to the program.
