It’s that time of year… time to check out your health plan and compare it with others to see which is best for you and your family. Changing health plans can be a tough decision. NCQA is here to help!
NCQA’s Health Plan Ratings
Our Health Insurance Plan Ratings give consumers a practical and meaningful guide to understanding their health care options and choosing the best health plans for themselves and their families. This year, NCQA rated over 1,000 private, Medicare and Medicaid health plans.
Which Plans Score Higher on Satisfaction & Outcomes?
Health Plan Ratings consider three major performance areas: consumer satisfaction, prevention and treatment.
- Consumer Satisfaction: What patients say about their health plans in satisfaction surveys, including about claims processing and customer service.
- Prevention: Checkups, tests and other care that keeps people—especially children—healthy.
- Treatment: How consistently a plan provides scientifically recommended care for common, costly conditions such as diabetes, depression and heart disease.
