DETROIT, Nov. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Health Alliance Plan's Medicare HMO is the top-ranked Medicare HMO plan in Michigan, according to the list of America's Best Health Plans in the November 17-24 issue of U.S. News & World Report.

The America's Best Health Plans list was created by the U.S. News Media Group, in collaboration with the National Committee for Quality Assurance.

HAP's Medicare HMO, HAP Senior Plus, was ranked 24 among 216 Medicare health plans nationwide in customer service, preventive services and treating illness.

"Our recognition is a credit to the top-notch physicians who care for our Medicare members and recognize the power of measurement and public accountability for improving health care quality," said Karen Wintringham, vice president Medicare and Public Sector Programs. "It's also a testament to our HAP Senior Plus members who take their health seriously and make sure they get the preventive care and disease management services they need."
