California Health Insurance Report Card

How does your health insurance plan compare? The State of California Department of Insurance released it's annual report card on many of the state’s HMOs and other health insurance plans.  The  report, released Wednesday from the state Office of the Patient Advocate, rated California’s nine largest health maintenance organizations, six largest preferred provider organizations and 212 medical groups representing 16 million consumers with private health plans.

These comparisons of health plans and physician practices are increasingly valuable for patients as they face higher out-of-pocket medical costs and the federal healthcare overhaul expands coverage to millions of more consumers. The report card can be found at http://www.opa.ca.gov/.
