Avmed health plans have provided peace of mind and financial protection from rising medical care costs to Floridians for over forty years. As a regional healthcare plan, Avmed works hard to provide customers with the same customer service and healthcare options as those offered by nationally recognized names in the health insurance industry. In fact, the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) statewide rating system for health insurance providers gave Avmed a score of 77%, a whopping 12 percentage points higher than the average health insurance provider in Florida. The rating covered assessments of providers and healthcare systems based on consumer opinions and assessment results.
In addition to ranking among the highest in Florida based on consumer assessment, Avmed health plans also scored ahead of previous years in areas such as specialist physicians, personal doctors, and the communication skills of said professionals. Consumers also rated these professionals and submitted their assessments based on specialists they saw or their experiences with their personal physician. Additionally, in 2008, NCQA rated commercial as well as Medicare products offered by Avmed as excellent, a difficult rating to get, especially given that the rating is based on plans and providers all over the country.
With so many accolades and more accredited to Avmed health plans, it is easy to understand why they enjoy such success and popularity in the state of Florida. Combine these awards and distinctions with other accomplishments such as “B” or better ratings for operational performance and excellent ratings for the company’s financial health, new plan members can rest assured that this regional health insurance provider will be around for a good while. However, if plan benefits and sound financial health of the company are not enough to convince you to make the choice to change plans, there are social responsibility initiatives involved with Avmed.
