Capital Health Plan is once again recognized among the very best plans in the nation. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has been releasing national rankings since 2005 and every year Capital Health Plan has been among the highest-ranked. According to “The NCQA’s Private Health Insurance Plan Rankings 2012-2013,” CHP’scommercial plan was ranked third overall in the published results and the top ranking HMO in the nation.
“Capital Health Plan is extraordinarily proud to be ranked again among the top plans in the country,” said Dr. Nancy Van Vessem, Capital Health Plan chief medical officer. “We are constantly working to improve the quality of our programs, and being recognized by NCQA seven years running is a tremendous honor. The NCQA’s rankings reflect the dedication and hard work our staff and medical community exhibit every day.”
Joining Capital Health Plan’s commercial plans among the nation’s elite are the Capital Health Plan Medicare Advantage HMO plans, which were ranked fourth in “NCQA’s Medicare Health Insurance Plan Rankings 2012-2013” national assessment.
NCQA uses scores from HEDIS®, CAHPS® and NCQA Accreditation standards to calculate plan rankings. These scores reflect the results of consumer surveys and the plan’s success in prevention and treatment compared to other plans. Health plans voluntarily report their scores to NCQA using data from HEDIS® and CAHPS® in categories related to overall satisfaction, access to care, prevention and treatment.
