What Was Measured?

Members who contacted their plan rate customer service helpfulness, getting cost information and claims paid correctly during 2009 and 2010.

Why Is It Important?

The best PPOs give their members clear information, pay claims correctly, and solve problems quickly. Also, good customer service means the PPO tells you the cost that you would pay for a medical service.

An Excellent rating means that a PPO is among the top 10% of all plans nationwide.
