Health plans were given scores in areas such as annual physical exams, cancer screenings, immunizations, diabetes and many others. A member's experience with their health plan was also weighed in the rankings. Members' shared their opinions on how quickly they can receive care and how well their Doctor communicates.

" We will continue to strive to provide quality care and exceptional service for our Members while working closely with our Providers."
