WASHINGTON, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S.News & World Report and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) today unveiled the third edition of America's Best Health Plans, an annual ranking of U.S. health maintenance organizations and point-of-service plans. Coinciding with the November launch of "open season," when many families face health plan selection options, the rankings will be published in the November 5 issue of U.S. News, on newsstands as of Monday, October 29 and online beginning Friday, October 26, at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time.

The 2007 online edition of America's Best Health Plans includes data and information on nearly 550 commercial, Medicare, and Medicaid health plans, as well as identifying 150 plans that chose to report no data. The rankings are based on more than 100 aspects of clinical performance, such as a plan's ability to help diabetic members meet a blood pressure target number, and customer satisfaction, such as how satisfied members are with specialists they see.

"America's Best Health Plans is a practical tool that helps consumers make informed decisions when choosing a health plan," said NCQA President Margaret E. O'Kane. "It lets consumers know which plans have demonstrated they can deliver the highest levels of care and service."

Avery Comarow, a U.S. News senior writer and the editor of America's Best Health Plans said, "It's hard to be a health consumer these days. While there is no shortage of information, not all of it is clear and trustworthy. The health plan rankings are one of many ways U.S. News tries to give consumers data that is accurate, easy to understand, and relevant to their and their families' health."

Below are highlights of the 2007 rankings:
