On Tuesday, the California Department of Insurance unveiled a Web-based PPO report card designed to help consumers compare ratings on five major health plans in the state, the Sacramento Business Journal reports.
A state report card for HMOs has been in place since 2002.
The new Web site rates PPOs on criteria such as:
- Asthma care;
- Cancer screenings;
- Diabetes care; and
- Pediatric health (Sacramento Business Journal, 11/17)
