Getting Doctors and Care Easily 2014 Edition

Why is it important to get specialist care, tests and treatments when needed?

Getting the right care at the right time means seeing a specialist doctor or getting tests when needed. Highly rated PPOs make sure you do not face delays or hassles in seeing a specialist doctor or getting tests and treatment.

What could PPOs do to help you get specialty care, tests and treatment easily?

Highly rated PPOs have systems in place that help you see a specialist doctor or get a test or treatment when needed.

What do the scores mean?

The scores show the percentage of health plan members who highly rated their PPO on getting the specialty care, tests, and treatment they needed, when they needed it. The higher score means more members said they are getting the right care at the right time.

The scores are based on information from a survey of a sample of PPO members in 2012.

Look for differences of at least 4%. Smaller differences usually are not significant.
