Contra Costa Times

California’s largest health plans are now immunizing more children and meeting other quality measures, but many patients report they are not able to get the care they need quickly and easily. These are among the findings of the 12th annual report card released Wednesday by the state Office of the Patient Advocate. The report is designed to enable consumers to compare the quality of care delivered by the state’s 10 largest commercial health maintenance organizations, six largest preferred provider organizations and 209 medical groups.
