Lansing, Mich. – Michigan Association of Health Plans (MAHP) member health plans were once again rated among the best in the nation, according to the independent 2019-2020 National Committee on Quality Assurance (NQHA) Health Insurance Plan Rankings.
Six of MAHP member health plans were recognized with “higher performance” across three market segments: Commercial, Medicare and Medicaid. The “higher performance score” was based on measures across three categories: consumer satisfaction, prevention and treatment.
For Medicaid plans, Upper Peninsula Health Plan was rated the highest in this category in the state at 4.5 score with Meridian Health Plan and Priority Health also highly ranked at 4.0. For Medicare, Priority Health ranked the highest at 4.5 with Aetna, Paramount Care and Health Alliance of Michigan (HAP) rated with 4.0 scores. For commercial health plans, MAHP members HAP and Priority Health were rated high performing with 4.0 scores.
These ratings are derived from Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS), and NCQA’s accreditation standards. These measurements were weighted on a 0-5 scale with any score above 4 indicating “higher performance.” Based on this scale, plans with a “higher performance” rating are rated in the top third of plans nationally. The reports are available here.
The rankings show Michigan’s health plans have demonstrated leadership and development in their programs for Commercial, Medicaid and Medicare.
“This year’s rankings demonstrate our health plan members’ dedication to providing quality care through customer satisfaction, treatment and prevention,” said Dominick, executive director of the Michigan Association of Health Plans. “Employers and individuals will have a choice when choosing a health plan that provides high quality, affordable and accessible health care.”
