Current Initiatives for CAQH CORE Participants

CAQH CORE Participating Organizations help ensure that operating rules continue to meet evolving business needs, by engaging in the rule development process and maintenance of existing operating rules. Work groups are open to all CAQH CORE Participating Organizations, and multiple individuals from the same Participating Organization may join. Because each organization has only one vote, participants collaborate with their colleagues to submit an organizational-level response during voting periods. 

Below is a list of CAQH CORE work groups that currently convene or are upcoming as well as initiatives that are underway. In addition to contributing to these work groups and initiatives, as well as the formal CAQH CORE voting process, Participating Organizations benefit from exclusive education content and research opportunities.
