Best Health Care Plan in the US: Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare?

The Nation Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) has named Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare as the #1 private health care plan in the United States for 2010-2011.

In addition, Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare also earned the distinction as “only private health plan in the nation to be named #1 for member satisfaction and quality of care for seven consecutive years” the company said in a press release.

The NCQZ ranked health plans across the country by evaluating them on issues
surrounding access to care, prevention efforts, and treatment of diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Harvard Pilgrim President and Chief Executive Officer Eric Schultz said their company has been continuously delivering superior customer service and has been helping improve the health of their members.

He also revealed that their company spends nearly 90 cents of every dollar that they collect on the medical care of their members.

Founded more than four decades ago, Harvard Pilgrim provides a number of insurance plans to its more than one million members across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.

Its affiliate Harvard Pilgrim Care of New England is also rated as the third-best private health care plan in America and the best in New Hampshire.


Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare also topped the ranking of the US News and World Report.
