A national group named Watertown-based Tufts Health Plan the top health insurance provider in two categories.
Tufts received the No. 1 ranking among both private insurance plans and Medicaid health insurance plans, known as Network Health.
“Being recognized for offering the nation’s top-ranked private and Medicaid health plans is tremendous recognition that reflects our unwavering commitment to providing affordable, high-quality health care coverage to our members no matter their age or life circumstance,” said James Roosevelt Jr., chief executive officer, Tufts Health Plan. “It’s a shared accomplishment for our entire community of members, employees, providers, employers and brokers.”
The Health Insurance Plan Rankings 2014-2015 were announced by the National Committee for Quality Assurance this week. The rankings include 507 private commercial plans and 136 Medicaid plans. They are based on quality measures from three performance subcategories—consumer experience, prevention and treatment—and NCQA accreditation.
“While it’s satisfying to be acknowledged as the best health plan, our core focus remains on the member and ensuring we provide them with an exceptional experience and care that is high caliber and affordable,” said Paul Kasuba, senior vice president and chief medical officer.
Tufts Health Plan has been ranked among the highest-rated health insurance plans in the nation by NCQA for 10 straight years, and this is the fifth consecutive year that Network Health has been ranked among the highest-rated plans by NCQA.
