Providing you with quality service
Providing you with quality service
Making sure you get the highest quality care when you need it is our goal. We partner with local providers who understand your needs. And the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) continues to accredit us. This is because we score high on:
- Clinical quality surveys
- Member satisfaction surveys
- NCQA surveys
Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) scores
We want to improve access to quality health care for our members. You have a large network of providers to help you be as healthy as you can be. This includes:
HEDIS scores help us make sure we’re meeting our goals.
What is HEDIS?
HEDIS is one of health care’s most widely used performance improvement tools. HEDIS measurement allows consumers to compare health plan performance to other plans and to national or regional benchmarks. We use these measurements to evaluate the quality of the care and services given to our members and to track year-to-year performance. HEDIS is one component of NCQA's accreditation process required by state regulators.
HEDIS includes more than 90 measures across 6 areas of care, including:
Effectiveness of care
Access/availability of care
Experience of care
Utilization and risk adjusted utilization
Health plan descriptive information
Measures reported using electronic clinical data systems
You can find our HEDIS scores and compare with other health plans on the Florida Health Finder website.
You can also learn more about HEDIS on the NCQA website.
Member satisfaction surveys
We want you to be happy with our services and the care you receive from our providers. We use surveys to ask members (or in some cases, their families) about their experiences with health care services in different settings. We use the results of those surveys to improve the ways we take care of our members.
The Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS®) survey
The CAHPS survey is what we use to collect data about our members’ experience. This survey asks questions that focus on matters that our members find important. It tells us how they rank our health plan, our operations, our healthcare providers, including doctors, hospitals, physician practices and other healthcare providers and facilities.
CAHPS also asks about experiences with other aspects of health care, including getting needed care, getting care quickly, how well doctors communicate, health plan customer service and rating of health plan.
The CAHPS survey is another component of NCQA's accreditation process required by state regulators. NCQA publishes Health Plan Ratings each year. They rate all the health plans on a scale of 0 to 5 (0 is lowest) in .5 increments. You can find our ranking and other health plans on the NCQA website.
Note: Your answers on our CAHPS surveys are private. You can learn more about CAHPS on the NCQA website. Or you can contact us.
Each year, we report our HEDIS and CAHPS survey results to the state agencies and to NCQA. The Florida agencies and NCQA publish an annual report card. The rankings are shown with stars.
To see our latest HEDIS and CAHPS survey results, you can check our report card on the NCQA website.
To see all results, including those for other Medicaid plans, just visit the Florida Health Finder website.
Your voice matters
If you get a member satisfaction survey, be sure to take the time to complete it. We do our best to earn the highest scores (9 or 10) from our members. If you’re not happy with your health care or service, we want to know. Just contact us.
We work hard to make sure you get the best health care and service. Each year, we look at how well we are doing. We set goals for care and service. If we don’t reach our goals, we make a plan to help us improve and reach our goals in the future.
We use HEDIS to measure if our members are getting good care. HEDIS is used across the country to compare health plans.
