Six of Top 10 Medicare Plans are ACHP Members

WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) today announced that 70 percent of its member plans have been recognized by the U.S. News and World Report and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as being among the top 25 health plans in the U.S. across Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial lines of business.

ACHP members are select regional health plans that provide coverage and health care services for nearly 15 million individuals throughout the U.S. Among the top 10 Medicare plans, one member plan, Fallon Community Health Plan, based in Worcester, MA, was rated as both the top Medicare and Medicaid plan. Six of the top 10 Medicare plans are ACHP members. Among the top 15 Medicaid plans, 5 are ACHP members.

The rankings clearly demonstrate that community-based health plans offer the best quality care available while providing enrollees the highest value for their health care dollar. These plans consistently achieve such high quality ratings through close coordination among all the providers involved in a patient's care. In addition, regional health plans actively work to identify patients' health needs through a variety of patient outreach efforts. Improving their patients' health is the key goal of these plans.

"I am extremely pleased that community health plans have again been recognized for their status as being among America's very best health plans," said Patricia Smith, the President and CEO of ACHP. "These plans are deeply invested in the communities they serve and provide the right care through a patient-centered approach. Community-based health plans are leaders in implementing such innovations as electronic health records, chronic care management programs, personalized web-based consumer tools, and health risk assessments, all of which combine to improve health care in the communities they serve."
