Kaiser Permanente health plans are the best in the nation, according to the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). NCQA’s annual report ranks health plans in three categories: customer experience, prevention and treatment. Kaiser Permanente Southern California is the top-ranked Medicare health plan in the nation for the third year in a row. In the Commercial rankings, Kaiser Permanente Southern California ranked first in California and seventh in the U.S.
Now in its ninth year, the “NCQA’s Health Insurance Plan Rankings” is based on combined scores for health plans in Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set®, commonly called HEDIS; the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems®, or CAHPS; and NCQA Accreditation standards scores. Consumers and employers assess plans prior to annual enrollment periods. Complete rankings and methodology are posted on the NCQA’s website at www.ncqa.org and on the Consumer Reports website.
