New CT Insurer report card online
The CT Insurance Dept. has published the 2011 insurer report card. The report card compares HMO and indemnity plans’ performance across dozens of quality measures including prenatal care in the first trimester, adult access to care, cancer screenings, childhood immunizations and controlling high blood pressure. The report includes statistics on plan enrollment, number of participating providers by county, and utilization review stats for each plan. The report card is an incredibly useful tool for anyone making choices about health plans but also includes consumer assistance contact information for each plan.
