J.D. Power and Associates Reports: Satisfaction with Health Plans Varies Dramatically From Region To Region, Largely Due to Poor Communication From Insurance Providers

healthcare practice at J.D. Power and Associates. "With increasing healthcare costs and an aging workforce that needs additional services, businesses have less and less tolerance for insurers that aren't consistently engaging members and helping them manage their own health care and the associated costs. However, we find that those plan members who are most engaged by their insurer through effective communication better understand how to use their plans and have particularly high satisfaction levels. Those higher satisfaction scores translate into better retention rates and more positive recommendations for the plan."

Arizona-Utah Region

BlueCross BlueShield of Arizona ranks highest, receiving a satisfaction index score of 763 on a 1,000-point scale.
