Network Adequacy Certification Tool

Network Adequacy

The SAPC Network Adequacy Certification Application process was created in response to Federal and State requirements for DMC-ODS Counties to submit data on the Network Adequacy standards for time, distance, and access to care.

The Network Adequacy Certification Application (NACA) is a web-based application that offers a streamlined and user-friendly way for providers to submit network adequacy and other required information.

All SAPC contracted DMC ODS providers are required to complete submission of network adequacy information by or before the deadline.

For more information and/or if you have any questions, please submit to
