Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida's (BCBSF) HMO product Health Option, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of BCBSF, ranked 140th among all commercial plans and 64th among the HMO Medicare plans.

Earlier this year, NCQA awarded the status of Excellent to the BCBSF Commercial HMO plan. "Excellent," NCQA's highest accreditation status, is awarded to plans that meet or exceed NCQA's rigorous requirements for consumer protection and quality improvement.

"Although we have maintained Excellent accreditation from NCQA for our commercial plan, we realize the importance of maintaining our positive measures, and are working to identify ways to improve our scores in various categories," said F. Miguel Fernandez, DO, MHS, FACOOG, senior medical director, health care programs, BCBSF.

The rankings in "America's Best Health Plans 2007" are based on three sets of scores. The first determines how well a company meets NCQA's standards for administering its clinical and administrative systems in areas such as quality improvement, consumer protection and service.

The second element is the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS(R)). This is a tool used by over 90 p
