PPO report card for consumers
Orange County Register

The California Department of Insurance has released a new PPO scorecard, similar to the popular HMO rankings. None of the six major plans received the highest ranking of excellent for meeting national standards. The state looked at Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Cigna, Health Net and UnitedHealthcare. Three plans — Aetna, Cigna and UnitedHealth– were rated good overall for meeting national standards for screening and treatment of conditions such as cancer and heart disease. The other three — Blue Cross, Blue Shield and Health Net — were rated fair.
