Harvard Pilgrim Tops NCQA Rankings for 4th Year
Medicaid Health Plans
Fallon Community Health Plan of Massachusetts topped the Medicaid health plan rankings.
Andy Reynolds, assistant vice president for marketing and communications at NCQA, says the health plan participation in the NCQA rankings indicates that more and more insurers are committed to measuring their performance and accept that transparency—providing public access to their performance results—is a critical step in the process of improving healthcare.
He notes that the health plans at the top of the rankings have been committed to transparency for a long time.
Of course, the more plans that are transparent with their performance results, the better it is for consumers and employers, who are increasingly considering the value proposition in their healthcare insurance purchases.
