HEDIS measurements

People can easily compare the quality of our plans to other plans using Quality Report Cards. The report cards use a standard set of measures called the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®).* More than 90 percent of America's health plans use HEDIS to evaluate performance.


The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) developed the HEDIS measures. NCQA is an independent, nonprofit organization. Its goal is to improve health care quality.
