NH Health Plan Quality Ratings

Choosing the NH Medicaid managed care plan that works best for you and your family is important.  Something to think about before you decide is how well different health plans perform. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) rates the performance of over 1,000 health insurance plans, including New Hampshire Healthy Families and Well Sense, the two NH Medicaid plans. New Hampshire Healthy Families and Well Sense are compared to each other in many key performance areas. 

What is Measured in Each Rating?

  • Member Satisfaction: This area rates current members’ experience of care with the health plan.  It includes information like, if members reported they got the care they need, when they need it.
  • Prevention: This area rates how well the health plan helped people get to routine doctor visits. It also rates whether members are receiving regular screenings for diseases like cancer.
  • Treatment:  This area rates how well the health plan helped people manage illnesses.  It includes illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, asthma, and depression.
