Health insurance choice may make you healthier

Rankings available to see how plans stack up
How to find rankings for your health-insurance plan

Medicare



To find ratings on Medicare Advantage plans or Medicare prescription drug plans, go to www.Medicare.gov and click on the link regarding enrollment ending Dec. 7 or choosing a plan. Enter your ZIP code. You can get cost estimates by answering the questions at the site.

If you want to see the ranking only, answer “I don’t know” to the first two questions, and “No drugs” to the next question. Then choose whether you are looking for drug plans or Medicare Advantage plans with and without drugs. That will give you a page with the plans in your area, and the rating is in the last column.



The National Committee for Quality Assurance



The NCQA has ratings for private HMO/PPO plans on its website. Visit www.ncqa.org and click on the rankings link at the bottom of the page. There you also will find a link to its rankings of Medicare and Medicaid plans.
