Popular health care coverage plans include Capital Districts Physicians Health Plan, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and UPMC Benefit Management Services, as stated by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The plans availability will depend on where the person looking for coverage lives because not all popular plans are available nationwide or can change slightly from one state to another.
The Capital Districts Physician Health Plan is available in New York and is a health maintenance organization (HMO) plan. The plan receives a five out of five on claim handling and the rating of the health plan from consumers. Consumers also ranked it high for the service they received from the plans available doctors. The specialist did not rank as high as the family practice doctors though, notes NCQA.
Harvard Pilgrim Health Care was given an overall score of five from NCQA, but on the individual items they scored much lower than Capital. The claim handling only got a two out of five and in the category that covers how easily care was received from doctors, it only scored a three. The doctors available on the plan earned a lower score as well at a three out of five.
UPMC scored very similarly to Capital in most categories. Their claim handling was rated at a four out of five, as well as their doctors. They did get a five out of five on the ease of getting care and getting it quickly.
