According to the just released National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) ranking of the nation’s Medicaid plans, Health Partners Plans’ Medicaid plan is first among all plans in Pennsylvania and 20th in the nation. NCQA’s Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) is the most widely used performance measurement in health care. NCQA uses scores from HEDIS, Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) and its own accreditation standards to calculate plan rankings based on overall satisfaction, access to care, prevention and treatment.

“We are so honored to be ranked the top Medicaid plan in Pennsylvania,” said William S. George, president CEO. “The NCQA ranking affirms the high quality care we provide to our more than 180,000 Medicaid members. It also demonstrates our commitment to evidence-based care, efficiently using resources, looking at innovative ways to improve health outcomes and consistently achieving the highest levels of member satisfaction.”
“As the chairman of the Health Partners Plans Board, I couldn’t be more proud,” said Barry R. Freedman, president CEO of Einstein Healthcare Network and an owner hospital of Health Partners Plans. “Their success exemplifies the value of partnerships between providers and payers who are focused on quality, innovation, wellness and service.”
This has been an especially meaningful year for Health Partners Plans. Last fall it launched Health Partners Medicare to extraordinary enthusiasm and enrollment growth, surpassing 5,000 members in just nine months. In a statewide consumer survey, its Medicaid plan was rated #1 in Pennsylvania for “satisfaction with child’s plan” and, for the 11th consecutive year, #1 in member satisfaction across Southeast Pennsylvania.
“Our more than 600 dedicated, talented employees are the reason we are able to provide such extraordinary care and achieve these honors,” said George. “This success and shared mission has led to the company being named a best place to work by Philly.com and Modern Healthcare.”
