Health Net of California’s Medicaid plan (Medi-Cal) was the highest ranked Medicaid plan in the state for the third year in a row, according to NCQA’s Private Health Insurance Rankings, 2011-12.
NCQA evaluated more than 483 private health plans for its report and ranked 390 of those based on clinical performance, member satisfaction and NCQA Accreditation. To be eligible for rankings, health plans must authorize public release of their performance information and submit enough data for statistically valid analysis.
