A new ratings system created by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) provides consumers with a more accurate picture of how health insurance plans perform in key quality areas. Using a methodology that makes its debut after two years of development, NCQA’s Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2015–2016 compare the quality and services of more than 1,000 health plans that collectively cover 138 million people—over 43% of the US population. NCQA studied 1,358 health plans and rated 1,016: 491 private (commercial), 376 Medicare and 149 Medicaid. The ratings replace the annual health plan rankings that NCQA published each fall for a decade, in partnership with US News & World Report and Consumer Reports.
