Kaiser Permanente’s Medicare Plans Are No. 1 Again

For the third year in a row, the National Committee for Quality Assurance has ranked a Kaiser Permanente Medicare health plan number one in the nation: Kaiser Permanente Southern California, which has been the nation’s top Medicare plan for two years running. Kaiser Permanente Medicare plans hold the top five spots in the 2013-2014 rankings; Kaiser Permanente Northern California was number two, followed by Kaiser Permanente Northwest, Kaiser Permanente Colorado, and Kaiser Permanente Hawaii. These five regions account for 8.2 million of Kaiser Permanente’s more than 9.1 million members. All eight Kaiser Permanente Medicare plans were in the top 16, which means all eight Kaiser Permanente plans are in the top 4 percent out of the 405 plans that were ranked.
